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

In desperate need of referrals/recommendations for a reverse recruiter or headhunters that work for job seekers rather than employers. I’ve been job searching and interviewing for 2 years now and I can’t take it anymore! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, the most it’s taken in the past was 5 months to get a job. I’ve spent money on resume services and a career coach so I’ve also invested money that’s landed me nowhere. I can’t think of anything else to try 😔

Please help! I’m a CRC who manages Investigator- led clinical research projects and I want to transition to a PM role in industry (I would slightly prefer not a PM role in clinical trials since I don’t have clinical trial experience.)

Any good startups to consider? Anyone have any insight or advice?
