Solomon Page. Recruiter hunted me down, messaged MULTIPLE times when I didn’t reply within the hour. Had a nearly three hour interview with client. Now won’t respond to my email.

Agency flys me out then decides not to hire me. Told me to keep receipts from the trip. I’ve sent over 3 emails about it. No response. Unsaid rule about not getting hired that you got to pay for it?!?

R/GA - they are the worst. Some of the people they have hired over the years makes me wonder if their HR department is smoking crack

“Hi there are you available and can you come work in (city)?” Got this from a “name” shop around 2:30pm PST. Responded promptly, yes to both. No response yet. Ghosting Countdown is on, folks! 🤞🏽⏰👻

If you could ask a recruiter one question about WHY they ghost/don’t ghost, what would it be? That is, what would you want to know about their worlds that might help you understand “ghosting”?

Didn’t get ghosted. Instead got specific feedback that I suck.

What’s our definition of “ghosting” here? For example, I don’t get mad about getting no response to cold emails. But not hearing back after I physically interview (or Skype) will make me furious.
