If I wasted part of my day to come and interview at your agency, the least you could do is not ghost me

Unfortunately this is the rule rather than the exception... I’ve just completed a 6 month job search and interviewed at 8 places... only two gave me the courtesy of a follow up... it told me a lot about the kind of companies they were

This is proof that everyone is just thinking about themselves, and that includes everyone at the agency where you interviewed. Theyre not thinking of your day. Of course they should let you know either way, of course ghosting sucks, of course its just professional courtesy. But you cant really expect them to think about it in terms of your day.

Actually, you can expect them to consider your day. It’s called common courtesy and professionalism and compassion. Consideration for other human beings is the literal minimum I expect in a potential job.

Same. 3 interviews. 2h30 each. Never called me again. Never answered to my mails. Last interview was « don’t worry it’s ok, we will hire you... »

The happened to me two times at an agency about ten years ago. First time I was on my way to the office and they canceled. Second tome, I was in the lobby. Then they called me six months later to see if I was still interested 🤦🏻‍♂️

This stiff makes me so angry. How hard is it to send a follow-up email?! Thanks so much for taking the time to meet with us. We have decided to go in a different direction (or not ). We will keep you in mind in the future.

I started deleting recruiters on linkedin for that nonsense. I had one hitting me up this morning asking to talk. Forget that noise.

I’m a fairly shallow person so thought even if I get the best possible SO, I will lose interest sooner or later. But then I realized it’s also due to the fact that I just like the IDEA of being in love, but never can truly love anyone where I put them ahead of me/my needs. Anyone else feel this?
