OMG! Why do recruiters go dark on you!? I had a great conversation with a hiring manager who said things like I can’t believe she (recruiter) found you, you are so polished, I want you to meet with the girl on my team -like I had it in the bag. The conversation with the girl on the team went well and told me how excited the hiring manager is and called her right away…. I email the recruiter to ask about next steps and nothing……

Was about to ask you further about the post. Anyway, congratulations! It was definitely worth the wait isn't it?

There is a lot to consider especially with end of year coming up and review season. Just hold out just a little longer.

How long has it been? I know this is frustrating - it's happened to me a few times as well. I had one guy outright tell me I was a total rock star during an interview and that he couldn't wait to start working with me. I finished up thinking I had that job hands down, and then I never heard back from him. I even followed up and *crickets*. It does suck, and it gives people in my role such a bad reputation. I'm sorry. Hopefully there was just a delay and you'll hear back from them soon.

Wow! That sucks. What happened in the end? Did you ever hear back?

We need to know if how long was it since you got a response from them. Maybe you are too overwhelmed that you are expecting a reply very soon.

Echoing the others- How long has it been since the last communication between you and the company?

There could be a number of reasons:
-interviewing other candidates
-interviewers/final decision makers/recruiter are out of the office
-interviewers/final decision makers/recruiters are busy
-went in a different direction
-hiring freeze, budget freeze
-waiting on formal feedback
-waiting on availability, next steps
-interviews may not have have gone as great as you think or expressed
-everyone is busy on other urgent projects and deadlines
-etc

Keep in mind you’re not the only candidate on that recruiters plate. That recruiter may be working on several roles, candidates, other projects tasks, etc etc etc. Patience is a virtue. Your timeline does not mirror another person’s/company’s timeline.

Hope you hear from them soon. If not, it’s ok to follow up. If you still don’t hear back,they may have gone a different direction.

How long has it been since you've heard anything?

Definitely depends on how long it’s been! I thought a recruiter/hiring manager ghosted me after 2 weeks of no response but turns out they were both on vacation 🤷🏻‍♀️
