Does everyone experience flakiness from recruiters? They’ll reach out about a job I didn’t apply for, get me interested, have phone calls, say they’ll schedule a CD interview and then ghost me forever

Unfortunately it usually means your book didn’t click with the CD’s I think. I am pretty tight with my recruiter at work and their job is to find a BUNCH of people who are interested and then field them through. If you get ghosted it is usually bc you or your book wasn’t right for the brand they are hiring under. The recruiter doesn’t hire you. The CD’s and ECD’s do. Sucks... but happens. I’m sorry dude.

If that's the case AD1, then they should just send potential books to the CD before reaching out to candidates. Out of that group someone is bound to say yes. Better than wasting people's time.

(Cont.) this has happened to me several times over the last 2 years. We’ll talk on the phone more than once and they’ll act super impressed and then they ghost. I reach back out and I’m met with radio silence. Hope this isn’t just me and recruiters are just like this nowadays?

This is like the recruiter version of the “have you ever had to work a weekend” thread.

I had one reach out to me saying she liked my LinkedIn profile and wanted to know if I’d be interested in interviewing. Problem is ... I already interviewed there and turned the offer down. 😂

I just bought one of those one-step hairdryer brush things and OMG it is life changing. It’s a brush and a dryer in one and I had my long curly hair blown out in 20 min. Game changer!!!

Had my interview w/ Deloitte. 1st Screening interview went great. On my marathon day: attributes interview was mediocre. Focus interview was great. Case study was mediocre, What are my chances?

Had my heart broken last night when this man stood me up. He was posting on social media right after so he’s fine. No reach out today. Feel like I’ll never find love. 38yo and getting depressed

There’s multiple posts asking about dating etiquette and what not. Can we define what “dating” means? At what point are you considered to be dating someone and making a commitment?

Okay, screw Chrome River. It keeps rasterizing a freaking PDF when I upload to receipts. What in god’s name allows this piece of crap to process a PDF like a JPEG?
