So I think I got ghosted by a recruiter... Had a screening interview that went well and ended in them wanting me to talk to the team. That was on Monday, now it's Friday and I haven't heard from them to schedule interviews. I sent a follow up yesterday and still haven't heard anything... Should I be worried?

I’d hold on being worried since it’s a holiday week. Follow up and if you don’t hear by Monday the 8th be nervous. Lots of people may have taken off this or next week

Monday is a Holiday. Make that Tuesday-Wednesday.

Market is heating up but not hot enough so they’re behaving like it’s tinder and the algorithm is off the charts so they need to figure out a reason to swipe left! Give it another 6 months and economy is booming and there’s not enough talent out there for the amount of work... we’re heading towards interesting times.

Don’t worry, this is normal. If you don’t hear back in two weeks, reach out. I once had a recruiter say “I’ll reach out about next steps later this week” and four months later “hey sorry we got busy and froze the process”

This happened to me a few weeks ago. They reached out 2 weeks after the initial call to schedule an interview with the team.

No point in being worried, regardless of what happens. The best opportunities happen because you make them happen — by tapping into your network or proactively going after them.

This is fairly unhelpful and not related to the question but yes, no point in being worried. it won’t fix whether or not they call.

I interviewed for a job a month ago. A few weeks after the interview, I was told my feedback was good, but the company was evaluating all positions at the company at this time. Today, I saw the job is no longer posted, but my application is still "active" in the workday system. Anyone have any idea what this would mean? I don't want to continuously bother the recruiter.
