Before you depart from the interview, you can ask the hiring manager what the next steps of the process are. You may hear that it will take a couple weeks to hear back, and in that case, you simply need to be patient. In general, a week is about how long you should wait to hear after applying for a job. If the employer does not establish a timeline, then you can give the hiring manager a call after about a week.
After a week, it is fine etiquette to send a follow-up email to ask if there is anything you can do to expedite the process. You may not hear back, or the hiring manager may continue to string you along. That is why it is critical to continue applying to other jobs during this time because a company that actually wants you as an employee will not hesitate to bring you onboard.
