Is ghosting job candidates the new norm? You go through extensive, multistep interview processes with many people, have an in person interview and then never hear back from the HR.

My favorite is now that the economy is doing well employers are complaining about employees ghosting them. Apparently the irony is lost on them.

No. There is nothing new about it.

Even follow up emails go unanswered. A friendly “Thanks but no thanks” email would’ve been sufficient but they don’t even bother to do that any more. I’ve applied to over 30 jobs in the last 4 months and this has been the case 80% of the time.

Nothing new about it. Still haven’t heard yes/no from one firm I interviewed with coming out of college (11 years ago)!

That happened to me at McDonald’s HQ after in person half day interview- very rude and I’ve told my friends as well, that’s not a place that treats people well if they can not say sorry we have gone with another candidate

That’s depressing than.

Yeah it’s definitely not ideal and I noticed it happening more frequently. Maybe another follow up will do the trick

Was laid off from D recently and have been interviewing primarily for strategy roles. Curious for any advice converting in final rounds. I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
