Confessions

Ghosted AGAIN. Twice in one week. One agency, one in house. WTFFFFFFF. I thought both interviews went well, one I felt 100% confident about. Sent upbeat, custom thank you emails - no response. NONE.

Follow up again. And then again. 75% of the time your email got lost in their inbox. If after three attempts you hear nothing then yes, you got ghosted

You just have to put yourself out there. Worst that can happen is they ignore you again. Best is that they respond.

Me too! I had a final round and the recruiter had been super nice the whole time. Followed up twice and crickets - not even to let me know I didn't get it. I'm so annoyed by this behavior. I get that it's hard to keep saying no but this was already final stage interviews and I really feel it's so discourteous to do so. especially since I want to keep good contact with them should other opportunities open up.

Exact same thing happened to me. They could have at least said 'no' after I spent hours interviewing! And then I would have stopped bothering them, too.

Took advice on here and am doing a free trial of Peloton using my Airdyne bike (fan bike). It's pretty good. You basically have to ignore the cadence/resistance talk. But the important part is the motivation and guidance to get through the workout. Would recommend.
