I am a CPA in the process of trying to switch to tech sales. I was in the process of trying to schedule a second interview with a tech company and got ghosted. Is this happening alot because of the recession? Should I keep following up?

Feel free to follow up, and not to discourage you but to be blunt yes and it’s going to happen a lot because there are already a growing number of laid off Tech AEs and BDRs entering the market because of a recession, so for the first time in several years depending on the prestige of the company and your location you may actually have decent competition.

I would always follow up. If I don't hear back in a week, I always follow up. It seems like lately recruiters have been really flakey and are ghosting more and more. If you don't hear back after a couple follow ups, it might be time to move on.

Follow up... remember, you're in sales now - always be closing!

So it is wasn’t a recruiter it was a lead for a sales team. Even if they don’t answer my follow up email. Do I follow up again?

Try calling if you have a phone number.
I normally do 2 follow ups then I'm done.

My magic number in sales is always 7 follow ups, but that’s for closing deals not necessarily looking for a position to get hired. That said, 7 is sort of the magic number to get a response back by.
