I’ve been working with a recruiter on a CXO position for two months and was told I was in the final 2 candidates. Heard nothing since for 3 weeks despite several attempts - won’t even call me back. I’m sure the opportunity is dead, but Is this how corporate recruiters roll? So disappointed they can’t even do decent thing and let me know.

Similar situation. It’s just been a week and half since. How long do you wait until you follow up though?

So unprofessional, it’s incredible. Headhunters should be relationship people. Look for the right one. I find ghosting something super common if agency HR reaches directly. Which is extremly sad. So sorry for the experience, maybe they’re not even worth it.

Move on. I’ve been there, and this is a culture indicator that people aren’t truly valued at this org and/or their operations are in a shamble.

Currently job hunting.

However, I can't seem to land a senior role. How do I convince an executive to take a gamble on me based on my past success and strong future potential?
