Interview Feedback: Feeling Ghosted?
Interview Feedback, what to do when you feel like you have been ‘ghosted’ after your interview
Wait, What Does Being Ghosted Mean?
We’re glad you asked.
The term commonly refers to the world of dating.
For example, if you were to attend a date with someone and they do not contact you afterwards, sadly, you have been ‘ghosted’.
Many people agree that recruitment and dating are not too far removed from one another (spooky!).
For instance, you catch one another’s attention, exchange a few emails, then you meet, you talk about yourself in the hopes that they will find you a suitable choice and then…you await their response (yikes!)… And then you hear nothing.
Therefore, the term has crossed over.
Thus, one may be ‘ghosted’ if you have not received any feedback after an interview.
- So Why Do Employers Delay Feedback?
Our closing advice would be this; having a recruiter on your side is a great advantage.
It is the job of a Recruitment Consultant to handle all the admin and awkward phone calls for candidates, making sure to provide helpful and progressive interview feedback.
