Employer ghosting is frustrating to say the least and not a good business practice.

I believe recruiters sometimes are inundated with applications and interviews and inevitably ghosting can happen.

I like to use post-interview follow-ups as opportunities to both thank the interviewer for their time and reiterate interest in the role, but also use the opportunity to nudge the interviewer to take action and keep yourself top of mind with them.

Like many, I have been in the unfortunate situation of abruptly finding myself without a job. I don't mind telling you, in the moment, it's a completely demoralizing experience. When this did happen to me, there were a few steps I took so I could move forward productively:

1) I was gracious -- I thanked my employer for the opportunity and offered to expedited any needed transition. Why was I so nice? I don't believe in burning bridges... see more

It's been awhile, so first and foremost Happy New Year to everyone. Since I last posted I received only one interview since I lost my job back in May of 2019. Three weeks ago, I did a phone interview with a major company and did well enough to receive a one on one interview a week later. That was the good. Here's the bad; as I arrived the recruiter I spoke with had me wait almost three hours until she could talk with me. She lost my paperwork... see more

In 2017 I was laid off from my job and unfortunately was unemployed for 6 months. In the beginning I thought, no biggie I’ll get a job in a month, but clearly that wasn’t the case. I’ll be honest, it was a really stressful time for me. I felt like I was spending countless hours in front of the computer, traveling to 1st and 2nd interviews, talking on the phone, and never getting a job offer. It was mentally exhausting and discouraging. As a... see more

I was the only associate in the whole dept, I had no help during the busy holidays and the customers were fed up and took it out on me. Well on December, 15,2019 like any other normal busy day I had a line longer then the wall of China. I was doing my best to acknowledge every customer in line and let them know I would be right with them when I could. The fitting rooms... see more
