Waiting on next steps. Thought I didn't get it, but got a random email from the recruiter last week telling me they're still deciding. Crickets ever since. Should I bother with a follow-up?

Follow up every week until they tell you that you didn’t get it.

Exactly. Why assume anything? You will only know for sure they're not interested when they tell you.

If they really wanted you, you wouldn’t be waiting. Sorry 😐

What do you have to lose by following up? If they are going to hire you, they won’t change their mind because you followed up too much. If you sit on the sidelines while they are potentially deciding between you and somebody else, you will regret it. You want something, you go after it.

I just followed up. Got an out of office telling me that recruiter no longer works there. At least she left another contact in the interim.

Fun times.

This happened to me. It took a while for the process to get back on track, but I got the job. Good luck. Stay positive.

If it’s a holding company agency, they take forever to get the offer out. Layers and layers of approvals. Keep following up.

uplifting

Show you want it and persist. Follow up.

Eh, it happens. Following up did give me a sense of closure though.

They are trying to make money off of you getting hired. They want you to be hired so they can get their percentage. Silence = keep looking
