Think you're being blacklisted by an employer? One of the best ways to do that is to call your old employer pretending to be a recruiter. Tell them you're calling about an applicant (that's you!) and then ask this ONE question:
Would you hire this person again? If the answer is no, you're being blacklisted. Try scheduling a meeting with that employer to find out why, and if there's anything you can do to get back in their good graces.
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.

I was kind of fired from a job after fourteen years. When I left I was given a severance and had to sign a gag order. Because I was scared that I would end up homeless in one the most expensive cities in the San Francisco Bay Area, I agreed not to discuss the situation to anyone and I asked that I be given a neutral reference which the University agreed to. However, to my dismay, I have been denied jobs because of negative references given by the... see more
I dont get it. I got rejected again. They loved my passion but no offer. What am I doing wrong?
I am acclaimed in my field. Just turned 50. 2 degrees. Working on my Masters. All my roles were progressively upward. Am I being blackballed? I remain prayerful.
I am a 36 year old male, an had been working non stop since the age of 16. With only 3 previous employees under my belt, I have always shown complete dedication, an allowed myself to root down in my previous employers. 5 years at a major international grocery company, 6+years at a national personal loan company, an 6+ years at a regional property mgmt/development company. After catching my supervisor falsifying invoices for her husband's... see more
Hello fellow Jobcase friends. I haven't updated my employment status in a long while--because I have none. It's been over two years now. I have been on numerous interviews over time. I have not been able to find a job. So considering the possibility that I was blacklisted by my former company, I believe it is definitely the reason no one will hire me. As I've stated before, this is a truly illegal practice but impossible to prove. So as I still... see more
I am defeated I have applied to advance and ever just lateral transfer to be closer to home instead of commuting for the same company for 3 years now. I am great at what I do and I have proven it over and over again. I have asked why and have been told by my regional manager he doesn't know what I do because my manager has never told him. I had the perfect opportunity to work on the site I live on and was told by that manager that he was boxed in... see more
I've been unemployed since May, I've had at least 30 interviews and everything is fine until they speak with my last employer. When I filed for unemployment, the woman in HR contested, it went to appeal and during that, the judge ruled in my favor and contacted the state department about the company. The woman in HR had a warrant issued for criminal negligence and I now I can't get work.
is it real???? never hear anything from applications
Can you be blacklisted for a job?
What should I do if I suspect I’ve been blacklisted by my former employer? Normally I wouldn’t care, but I live in a small town where healthcare is dominated by one hospital (where I used to work) and a couple of medical practices. I had a bad experience working at the hospital, but does that really justify being blacklisted? I’m so mad!!!!
