I've had 5 no-shows to video interviews for a recruiter position. It's a full-time time, salaried , 100% remote role. I have 8 other corporate roles and not experiencing this. Any tips or ideas? I send interview reminders, send a follow-up email/text after the no show to make sure they are ok. I haven't heard back from anyone. So odd.

I had a recruiter call me about a remote recruiter role and the money is crazy, WFH stipends, wellness stipends, etc.
I haven’t had too many people ghost me for positions but the few that have it really surprised me. I reached out to them and just ask them if they got a different job or if there was some feedback for me and the company. I sent it through text and two responded, so you might try that.

This, plus you can always review the information you are sharing with candidates to make sure you are making the position and company sound attractive.

I am wondering since the poster isn’t sharing anything here in this forum/thread about the job or to highlight why it’s an awesome role maybe those people looking or open to make a change are taking the path of least resistance and going with the recruiter who is the most forthcoming.

The recruiter that will talk about money, benefits, opportunities for growth, flexibility of the organization and if it’s a remote role right from the beginning before the candidate is asked to do anything is going to get the attention every single time over others…WIFM (What’s in it for me). Be able to share that right away and you have a chance.

Just alone in this thread there’s been numerous people that have been interested. Why not take advantage of that as well as people here that know people that could be interested and post what is so great about this job. It’s a job seekers market it’s not a Recruiters market and it’s not gonna be a Recruiters market for a very long time!

I wonder what level of exp and salary? If you are not paying market, you are probably getting ghosted for higher paying companies/positions.

Looks like you picked up 4 candidates just from this post

It's only that one role? Could it be something about the job description that is giving people pause? Or maybe someone who worked at your company in that role previously shared some negative feedback online that is making candidates have second thoughts. Have you checked Glassdoor?

Hi. Yes I did check Glassdoor. Nothing there to deter. But good thought on taking a closer look at job description. I even googled myself to see if there was something negative about me. Appreciate the comment.

I've had the exact opposite experience. I've been ghosted by hiring managers and recruiters after I've made it to the final round of interviews. This is happening a lot lately and not just to me. I've had several peers who've experienced the same.

OMG I have never been ghosted by a recruiter before and I was ghosted twice. They both just responded yesterday and I declined. Communication is very important to me, it’s simply unprofessional to not even give a courtesy call back.

Are the hours, pay range, and expectations listed in detail on the job posting? Most times I’ve ghosted an interview is due to an abundance of interviews, so I don’t bother talking to a company just to receive a lowball offer.

That is so odd. They haven’t responded to follow ups? I hope it’s not a technology issue.

I thought that too. But it's not happening with other positions or with the recruiters who do show up. It's odd if it was a tech issue that not a single one would call or email me about it. I even text from my personal phone.

Is this a second round interview? I’m wondering if there is something specific to this role that you are sharing in the first round that is turning candidates off.

It's first round.

Could it be as they prepare for the interview, they uncover things about the company that do not align with their values or corporate culture preferences? Or possibly concerns of the leadership and/or leadership styles? Glassdoor can be quite insightful depending on how large the employer and posts on there.
