Why Are Recruiters Ghosting You and What To Do About It?

It is not easy feeling ignored, esspecially when you are looking for a new role and time is of essence.

Before you jump to conclusions, try to remain mindful of the recruiter's possible situation.

If there's no feedback after the interview, this might be happening:

🔴 The recruiter went on vacation or left the company.

🔴 The company or hiring manager may have paused the hiring or shifted their focus to filling a different role, without much warning.

🔴 The recruiter you were speaking with is inexperienced or not so great at their job.

If you have been ghosted, here is what you can do:

Reach out and write a follow-up email seven days after your last talk or email.

Be polite and avoid being pushy or aggressive – it will not help.

Assess the situation objectively.

Sometimes, things are not as we like to think, and maybe that interview didn't go as well as you believe.

Continue with your job search.

Do not stop applying even if you are about to get an offer. You can never predict what could happen, so stay in the game until you sign that contract.

Remember, after the first interview, one of your questions at the end should be, "What are the next steps in this process, and when is it okay to follow up?".

If you suspect that your interview skills need improvement, conducting mock interviews and practising with someone can mean a lot for your readiness and your confidence for the actual job interview.

Work smarter, not harder. Good luck! 🍀
