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?!?
I’m ghosting a recruiter and it feels great!
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￼￼
So pretty much everyone... sigh
“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”?
ghosted from FIG :(
Lauren May and Nicole Wright - Ogilvy
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.
Juliette Rue at Deutsch LA
Essence NY anyone?
I’m watching my ACD ghost a girl I referred to him and it honestly really disappoints me as I look up to him...
Ali Horowitz of 360i NY
Carmichael Lynch. It’s a goddamned ghost town. I’m starting to think they don’t have email there.
Jamie Engelmann at VB&P is a repeat offender.
Anyone else get ghosted by GSD&M?
Edelman. Fourth time now — each time, they reach out to me! Honestly, I’m not looking for a job just trying to be polite and keep my network open but fool me once; fourth time and you’ve been blocked.
At what point do you consider yourself officially ghosted? No response to 2 emails? A week since the promised follow up?
Rita Armstrong. Talked big game about getting me in front of a bunch of shops and then never responded to any follow ups.
Here’s a cheerful one to end your week: Was told last week my freelance gig was ending today. Contacted my network of gatekeepers and one wrote to me on Sunday. (Contd)
Mullen Lowe, after I was flown in for an all day interview and workshopped a deck the team was struggling with on the fly. Had to bug them for 3 months to get my cab fare refunded.
McCann was the worst. Ogilvy and RG/A
215 McCann, Heat SF, and LinkedIn (in-house)
Razorfish. Although every once in a while they’ll reach out to me for irrelevant positions.
Vaynermedia, every 2 years.
