25 Mar 2018 I had a Skype interviewer with a potential postdoc supervisor, and he mentioned that those who passed the first Skype interview will be informed after he interviews all people, which is around 2 weeks prior to a second formal interview held at his institute.
I am in another country and will need 2-3 weeks to apply for a visa to go abroad for the second interview. If I am told the results after he finishes interviewing all people, I am very likely not able to obtain a visa in time for the scheduled second interview.
Could you please give me suggestions on how to write to him about this situation without being rude. Thank you very much!
----20 June 2018 Sevel months have passed! How time flies. To follow up, I didn't ask him to give the results sooner than he planned. And I didn't get the job either.
That was my first skype interview, so I didn't have much experience and failed it. But now, I have received a great offer.
