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.

I wonder: Do recruiters/agencies feel that if THEY paid your way there, then they don’t have to show you any courtesy after that, when they ghost?

I’d like to think that it’s not deliberate or malicious, but more a mindset that it’s a non priority to close the loop with a thanks but no thanks. Which in itself is still unacceptable and inexcusable. Anywhere but this function would be fired for ghosting a client or colleague, right?

Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.
