Recruiters, does your communication with a candidate stops once they signed an offer? I have been working with a recruiter for a job I just got, they have been very responsive and friendly up until I signed the offer. After that they stopped responding to any of my follow up questions. I had to reach out to the hiring manager for onboarding questions instead. Is this typical?

This happened to me too! I freaked out and thought the offer was revoked somehow, but it turned out the recruiter just went on vacation 🤦🏼‍♀️

I feel you. Was the same for me - one day a box with my laptop just appeared in the mail. No communication to go with it. Not a great experience, but luckily everything has been great after actually starting the job. Hopefully it will be the same for you ❤️

Definitely not!
