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

Omg. Still...better than ghosted?


I dunno.



Honestly, I don’t mind rejection letters so much. At least you have closure and you’re not wasting any more time trying to follow up. Even if it’s shitty, they’re not going to make you waste your time. sorry they said that though, it certainly doesn’t help.


That’s good-it means they took you seriously and considered your work. That’s all anyone can ask for.


Omg...name drop...?

Why are you surprised?

Hi, I am moving from USA to Canada very soon, on PR. I had a question about moving my stuff.

I was originally planning on just bringing everything with me and paying for extra baggage but since I am traveling solo, I’m not sure if I will be able to handle all the bags myself.

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!


Recently made a move from consulting to BigLaw. What a drastic difference in work, billable methods and requirements, and pay. But so far, such a good move. Proud of what it took to get here and finally practicing law. Happy Labor Day weekend folks

Greetings, Ghosted! bowl members. As 2019 concludes, people who posted here: please let us know if you ever heard back from your ghosters.


Lauren May and Nicole Wright - Ogilvy


I believe I was just ghosted by 2 different recruiters within a 3 hour window. Is that some sort of record? Do I get a prize?


So pretty much everyone... sigh


On 👻 high alert: over last few months I’ve had 5 phone interviews, was flown in for all-day session of 5 in-person interviews followed by giving a full “case study” preso...crickets for 1.5 wks since


Johannes Leonardo. Nancy was the queen of ghosting.


Anyone else get ghosted by GSD&M?


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.



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.


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.


ghosted from FIG :(


“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! 🤞🏽⏰👻

Might be opposite of ghosting but still lame: interviewing brand side, lonnng 6+ month process, was told after “final” on-site interviews I was THE top candidate, they should decide soon, then (cont)


MDC - Annie Warren


I’m watching my ACD ghost a girl I referred to him and it honestly really disappoints me as I look up to him...


Ghosting after on-site interviews is despicable. Recruiting has been a part of my job for years in addition to resourcing & project management, and I would always manage to reply emails.


This isn’t a ghosted story, but I think you guys might appreciate. Couple of months ago, I got a rejection letter for a position I never applied to. Like, I wasn’t even in the market for a new job...


Acronym NYC was a nightmare to try to get feedback/move the process along
