When working with a 3rd party hiring agency, would you typically follow up with the recruiter for updates?

I used to, but after years of working with 3rd party agencies I assume they ghosted me. Got my current gig through one, and it sometimes works out. Keep pushing for other opportunities, and if they have news they will call.

Thank you kindly :)

You mean like a recruiter or executive search ? YMMV. Some good, some not. Only thing to keep in mind is that their client is the company, not you

Hi! Around 3 months back I gave IBM Cognitive test as the initial assignment but bombed it due to some technical issues and my candidature was rejected further. However, my profile has again been considered by IBM for a similar role and received Cognitive test link again. Since the previous test results are valid for 1year, the activity was auto completed. What is the probability of me being considered for further rounds? Please enlighten. Thanks
