So, a recruiter from Microsoft reached out to chat about a role. I gave her the times I’m available, but I haven’t heard anything back since then. It’s been a week. Is this normal? Microsoft

Microsoft is the slowest of any company I’ve interviewed with. May be worth a follow up email.

Sometimes things hit spam - it’s worth a follow up.

If it is on LinkedIn, then a lot of times recruiters will copy&paste messages tp tons of people. Once they receive enough replies, they will ignore the others.

Nope wasn’t LinkedIn. Direct email message in response to a job I applied for

Very normal. Took 8 months from the first time the recruiter reached out, up until i received a written offer. Fun times.

Similar timeline. Started talking to recruiter in August 2021. Just got offer

uplifting

I touched basis with my recruiter when I was in the Microsoft pipeline weekly. It was something like 3 months to do 2 rounds of interviewing total and get my offer in the Inbox (Not as bad as Uber or JPMorgan, which took forever ...).

Regardless of any company, whoever your point of contact is there to answer your questions. Don't feel like you can't ask them questions as long as you don't pester them with dozens of emails. IMO, first party recruiters can be great allies during the hiring phase.

I am in the same boat. Recruiter reached out, asked for available times. Submitted times a week and half ago and haven’t heard anything back.

When interviewing - either as the interviewer or interviewee - what of you think of the recommendation to say things like "What a great question!" or "I'm really glad you asked me that!" I personally find this to be false flattery. As an interviewer it turns me off. And, as an interviewee I try to focus on real answers to the question.

But, perhaps others have had success with this approach.
