Had a great interview last week. Sent the recruiter, ACD, and ECD “thank you” emails. Not one response. Is it really that hard to say “it was nice meeting you too?”

Hang in there. You took the action, you did your part. Don’t let a non-reply get you down, it means nothing. Neutral. You don’t know how busy they are. Plus some HR departments advise not to reply in order to keep things neutral or not lead a candidate on.

I make mental notes of thank you’s and mental notes of those who do not say thank you, but I often do not reply. I don’t do it intentionally per say. Don’t take it personally.

At my company, the only people allowed to make contact with a hire outside of an interview setting is HR. Just because they dont respond, doesn't mean they dont appreciate it. Maybe they just cant.

Agree with the OP. If someone takes time out of their day to chat/meet with anybody, the least the other party can do is to acknowledge and reply back. Even if it’s a lame one-liner. Don’t be jerk or worse an asshole. Show some decency and have manners.

I once got really nice replies from every person I met with. No job offer.

This thank you notes are a nonsense anyways. From whichever side. In our biz the book is everything, no need for games imo.

Not very physically attracted by my bf. We've been together for over 3 years. I feel he is like my best friend but not my partner. He seems to feel the same. I'm quite confused about our relationship.

I’m in account mgt and have projects with social. The recent change to your pod structure, and the hyper-specificity of jobs has made “who does what” a mess. Social doesn’t seem to understand this.
