Is it the norm for companies people interview for, even those who bring you in in person for an almost 4-hour interview with several members of the team, to fully ghost you afterward, even after a follow up? I find it extremely disrespectful. You go in knowing that the law of the market means you may not get the job, but you do invest time to interview, shouldn’t basic decency guarantee you at least a formulaic “thank you but we did not retain your candidacy” type of follow up?
