Recruiter emailed ME. Reached out to ME. Wanted ME. I excitedly accepted. With a BIG brand so reasonably so. We were supposed to have a phone interview and she ghosted me. Why. This is not cool.

I don't contact people for interviews, I contact them to phone screen them to see if they should be interviewed, but maybe that's what you meant. Anything could have happened She/he heard something negative about you from a current employee or trusted source Sent your resume around for feedback was told you're not a fit and just didn't let you know. Was told to focus on another candidate or role by powerful member of sr leadership team. (Recruiter works for them, not you) Was a sourcer. A sourcer would just find you and find out if you're interested and then pass you to someone else to decide if they wanted to phone screen you (I do this for people sometimes) Plumb forgot Was fired Left the company You should follow up if you haven't already. Hey recruiter, I'm still very interested in chatting about the BigBrand role at agency X. Can you let me know either way about the status of the role and whether or not I might be a contender? Thanks, PM

Hi, I’m a Canadian PR holder currently in the US. Trying to make the move to Toronto in the new few months. I see positions at Deloitte that I think are a good fit but applying online without a referral appears to be going into a black hole. Is there anyone on here I can connect with to understand more about Deloitte’s hiring process? (Recruiters I can reach out to, people willing to give referrals etc)? Would be grateful! I have contacts in Deloitte US but that doesn’t seem to apply for CA.
