One of the most common complaints that job seekers have is the silence that frequently follows resume submissions and interviews. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard one of these statements.
- “I sent in my resume 2 weeks ago but haven’t heard anything in response.”
- “The recruiter reached out to me to see if I might be interested in a specific position. After a brief conversation, she said she’d talk to the hiring manager and get back to me. That was 3 weeks ago and I haven’t heard from her since.”
- “Last month I interviewed with the hiring manager and it seemed to go well. I was told that I would be contacted in a couple of days to schedule follow-on meetings with his staff, but it’s been radio silence since. I even called the recruiter and she hasn’t responded. I just wish someone would tell me something one way or the other.”
