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.

One of the most productive pieces of career advice I got in my early years out of college was my first manager telling me to always dress for and act for the next role I want, so that when opp opens up I am a natural to be considered. That worked in my early banking career quite well.
Nowadays part of my role is to identify new leaders. I don't really look or care about attire (Sorry Mr. Phinney, that worked in 20th-century banking but not in... see more
I can relate to how you feel, at least you know you have a Real interview. I keep getting E-mails, asking Me to confirm the interview but when I click on the button, there is never any information telling Me when and where to appear, Not even a Phone interview. I don't understand these Agencies, you answer them but never get a Real interview!
As the job seeker, we are on our best behavior, but recruiters and hiring managers are not. I tell myself that I wouldn’t want to work with that company anyway if they treat people like that, the way they are trying to recruit.
How many times have they asked for your Resume then they are gone, or when you have a phone interview then you never hear back from anyone.

I had a lady contact me thru Indeed. She messaged me and asked if I would like to interview. We had a phone interview and I went two days later and had another interview .

Tina, what is ghosting?!?
I have been experiencing employer ghosting for over 2 years. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Business and Management 10+ years of experience in my field. I’ve turned in over 300 resumes done by professionals at a cost of 700.00 and 0 interviews. I have a clean record never been fired. The one interview I did receive was for a position I was overqualified for and the manger literally said, “I’m not going to waste my time or yours because... see more
There are a lot of people posting
employer ghosting on Jobcase, but no one has defined what it means. I did some research and found this:
This is the definition of "employer ghosting:
You’re communicating with recruiters or hiring managers about a promising new job, and they suddenly stop returning your messages. You’ve been ghosted.
Q: What if a potential employer stops responding to me?
A: It’s happened to all of us: You’re communicating with... see more
