I interviewed for an industry position 2 months ago. Every couple of weeks I follow up and the recruiter for the company says no update yet. What do you think?

What do they say when they respond? It sounds like they’re keeping you warm in case whomever they went with doesn’t work out. Or they’re keeping you warm bc something happened at the company to delay their projection of when the role needs to be filled

I mean I follow up and they respond. I thought they would just not respond if they don't want me or at least say I didn't get the job.

I figured if they didn't want me they would just stop contacting me. Very confused.

Well you say you’re the one following up and then you say they’re contacting you? Which is it?

Yes this sounds like a guy getting strung along by the kind of girl who has a lot of options. Personally I wouldn’t keep following up - if they want you, they’ll come after you. They obviously have your number. 🙄

They would just say they are still interviewing and will have an update soon. Last week they said "the team is still debriefing and I hope to have something for you soon"

I already gave up on this. Just wanted to know if this is normal, I don't interview often and when I do decisions are quick definitley never been strung along like this.

Seems odd and if you were actively looking they would have already lost out on you

Yeah if they really wanted you they would've said something already. They're not going to lose out on a candidate they want by playing like that. I'd move on.

Yeah that's what I started doing a couple weeks ago.

Need to be honest about something. White people have helped me in my career way more than other Black people and non Black people of color. And I have accounted for Black people and non Black POCs being in the position to help. Most were able to but just wouldn’t. I have put myself out there to help others and got burned, so maybe that’s why. I know we have less room to take risks. But it still bugs me.

Hey mamas - at my current job I’m no longer happy. My managers style of running her team is a big part of this.

I have a tech background and 12 years of experiencem I have always done both project and product management. I'm now switching jobs and have received two very good offers.

I'm unsure about what career is better for my future and growth potential.

Design challenges: I'm in the process of trying to change jobs, and recently cam across two companies that do "design challenges' during their interview process.

Thoughts?

Hey, another question for y’all. How should I reach out to a recruiter who offered me a full time position but I rejected for a better offer? At the time I was offered the position my main concern was lack of guidance/support from leadership. Now, a year later I have experience being in a role with limited over site (not as scary as I initially thought it would be) and feel confident I would excel in the role I rejected. How would you approach this situation? Thanks in advance!!
