Scale of 1-10, how crazy is it to check-in email the CDs you interviewed with? Unless there’s been a terrible accident I’m pretty sure the recruiter is ghosting me. The not knowing is killing me!

Most likely there’s been a terrible accident. That or email and phones have been shut off at their home and office. Also their hard drive was probably wiped as well.

Laughing because I’m a recruiter and am currently Instagram stalking an SVP-level candidate who dropped off the face of the earth in the middle of the interview process. The ghosting goes both ways!

This is why you should always follow up the meeting with a thank you note with some meat to it. Open that line of communication, so you can naturally reopen it as things change.

Great advice!

How long has it been?

The holidays definitely make things drag out, but to go that long without a response from the recruiter is unacceptable. I had a lot of managers on vacation, I still responded to candidates to let them know where things stood. In this case, I would ping the recruiter a few times this week and I would mention in one of your emails that you’ll follow up with the CDs if you don’t hear from them just in case they’re no longer with the company. Hopefully that’s a subtle hint that their behavior is not acceptable, and in fear of being called out to the CD, they’ll get back to you. If not, then yes, go ahead and reach out to the CD directly.

I never minded if a candidate emailed me after meeting, if it’d been a few weeks and they hadn’t heard anything from our internal recruiters. If it was an external recruiter I’d always respond, and say I’ll check on it internally, but they should also check in with the ghoster.

Email the CD tomorrow. What have you got to lose? If you want the job, GET IT.

Hey everyone, I am a current rising college senior coming from a no target school. Since my sophomore year, I’ve wanted to work at Goldman Sachs. Now that the applications are almost open for next year’s new analyst roles. I’m really interested in applying in their internal audit and risk division. Has anyone ever interviewed with GS or done their hirevue? I would love to hear some tips on how I can boost my chance of getting interviewed. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

SEEKING OPINIONS & FEEDBACK: I love the honest & practical discussions here, where people can freely identify things that are going on & seek guidance. Wondering whether anybody’d be interested in some kind of more purposeful community- i.e., gathering w/fellow lawyers to pursue some specific mental health & well-being goals? We’d provide some counseling/coaching type content, in bite sized chunks, but have regular discussions to connect & encourage one another on applying the content IRL.
