Why Don’t Recruiters Give Feedback After Rejecting Someone for a Job? | JobSearchTV.com

For many, this is one of “the great mysteries.” After all, a job hunter can learn from what they are told. Then, there is the real reason.

Summary

The question for today is, "Why don't recruiters give feedback after rejecting someone for a job?"
So, we don't know if this is a corporate recruiter or third-party recruiter, but I think the answers are pretty similar throughout. The reason most the time, . . . well, there's a couple of reasons. But reason number one is they forget. I know that's not one that you want to hear but, believe it or not, people are human beings, even if they're recruiters, and they forget to do it.
But let's assume that it's intentional. The intentional reason is they don't want to get into an argument. We live in litigious societies, and people and organizations get sued. So the notion of "too light," often shows up.
"What do you mean I'm too light?? I answered all their questions!" But you did it badly or you did it in an immature or amateurish kind of way. Suddenly there's an argument that takes place.
How does it help the corporation? How does that help to the third party recruiter? All that's happening is there's an argument where you're blaming the individual on the phone for the fact that their client or the hiring manager didn't see the value in hiring you. They didn't see that you were a solution to the problem.
Now, some of that could have been your performance; some of it can be completely arbitrary. Some of it could have been inferred by the answer to the first part of the question that you gave that wasn't good enough for them to go to the second part. So I can understand, from their standpoint.
And I get that you want to know what to do better so you can perform better on your next interview. But that doesn't help them. There's nothing in that for them. All they get is the argument. No one ever says, You know, you're right." Never happens.
I did search for more than 40 years. No one ever said to me, "You know, they were absolutely right about that. I really didn't know that." It also begs the question of why you would have been interviewed if you didn't know the significant thing for the job. But that goes for another topic.
I'll just simply say, there's nothing in a corporation's interest to tell you and from a third party recruiter standpoint, they want to try placing you in another job. They don't want to argue. They don't want to defend their client. They're just the messenger for bad news. As such, even if, like, they got to a point pretty early on, I would just message people to let them know they were rejected. Sometimes, I must in all candor, say I didn't do that because I got into arguments. Eventually I got to the point where I just email, a generic generic message that indicated my client had turned them down. I'm going to keep looking at other things.

Why Do Recruiters Ask My Thoughts About The Interview Before Giving Me Feedback?

EP 1200 There are several reasons why they corporate and agency recruiters do this.

Summary

Hi! I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm the head coach for JobSearchCoachingHQ.com and NoBSCoachingAdvice.com. This is the new Job Search Radio done as a video. What can I tell you!??? I was asked the question by someone I thought was terrific. The question is, "Why do recruiters ask my thoughts about the interview before giving me results?"

I think the answer is true whether it is a corporate recruiter or a third party recruiter. It involves 2 potential sets of situations. Understand that from a recruiter's standpoint, both corporate and third-party, the last thing they want to do is to make a phone call to a hiring manager who is not going to be pleased. If you were to tell them, "You know, I think I stacked up the joint. I had an awful performance. They asked me questions that I just couldn't answer." Why would they call the hiring manager and be berated by them or risk being scanned by them or criticized by? Seriously. Why would you want to do that?

If your internal recruiter a corporate recruiter, you're being criticized by 1 of your users who can go to your boss embarrassing. If you are an external recruiter, you don't want to remind the client that you screwed up. There's no point in calling the hiring manager if you stank up the joint.

Here's another scenario. They already have feedback. What they're really trying to find that is whether YOU are interested. What they are trying to do is to gauge your interest based upon how you answer the question.

"So, what are your thoughts about the interview?"

"I think it went really well. The manager was terrific. I learned a lot about the role. I like the role." Suddenly, they can convert the conversation into something that I will call a pre-close, something that they can use to start persuading you about the opportunity, draw information out from you and turn the conversation into something where they say something like, "You know, your 1st conversation, you said you were looking for a salary of such and such." They can confirm that the numbers that you are speaking about haven't changed. They can start working toward maneuvering you into be interested in their opportunity.

For example, they can say, "I'm glad you are interested. I've already heard from the hiring manager and they thought you were terrific." Suddenly, you are beaming with pride. You're excited. Your tail is wagging . . . it's a good call for you, right? They can then start talking about, "They are going to want you to come back and they are going to start building up momentum to having you go back and preparing you for the next interview.

So, the reasons are pretty simple. Either you stank up the joint and they don't want to stick their neck in the noose, you did well and they wanting to get you excited about the opportunity and, here's the third one . . . you're kind of neutral and they know they are going to have to make the call because all they are getting is a factual recitation of the events and they can't interpret from them whether or not the ,manager was interested.

This is all about gaging your interest and how you performed.

I Haven’t Heard Back from the HR Recruiter | No BS Job Search Advice Radio


Listen to the full episode here::
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2018/11/24/i-havent-heard-back-after-my-interview–nobsjobsearchadvicecom

EP 1295 Should I email the recruiter or my interviewer? What are some tips in order to hear back after I email either one of them?

Summary

The question is, "I haven't heard back from anyone after my interview. Should I email my recruiter or the interviewer? What are some tips I should know before I hear back from either 1 of them?"

Here is one observation-- I don't know you recently you did the interview. If you did it today and you haven't heard it by 4 o'clock it may just be too soon for them to get feedback. Also, I don't know what kind of recruiter this is. Are you talking about a corporate recruiter? Third-party recruiter? I'm going to try to address a lot of my contingencies with this answer but, in the meantime, let's work on this question..

I haven't heard back from anyone.. You obviously want to hear back. Here's the easiest way to hear back-- Knock their socks off. Blow everyone else out of the water. Impress the heck out of them so that they go, "Oh! We cannot let this person leave our offices. . We cannot let them leave our domicile without a job offer!

Obviously, this did not happen. So let's go on to the next scenario.

Sure I will email the recruiter or my interviewer? Let's start by looking at the recruiter. Corporate recruiter? Third-party recruiter? If you are introduced by a third-party recruiter, definitely contact them,,,, not the interviewer. If it is a corporate recruiter,, it depends on what the initial introduction was. If you are introduced by someone within the firm and the 1st interview that you did was with the hiring manager and then with the recruiter, go to the hiring manager 1st because you are introduced by someone to them..

If this was just, "I answered an ad. They called me and it was a good interview," contact the corporate recruiter.. They are really running point on the relationship with you. They may not have heard anything yet.

How can you get some feedback after the interview in order to hear back? The easiest thing to do is, at the end of the last meeting that you had, get a sense of their timeline.

When they asked, "So do you have any questions for us," go through a series of questions.. When they ask, "Is there anything else," ask them, "Could you give me a sense of your timeline for next steps? This way, I have reasonable expectations about what I might hear back from you. . I know it is not cast in stone. I know it may take a few days longer, . But, if., "You will hear from me tomorrow if it is good news,," and that is a week later, I know my answer. that's one thing.

Another way that you can do it is, when they ask, "Is there anything else,," ask, "What were your impressions of me today? What did you perceive my strengths to be? Where could I do better? And I compare with others that you've interviewed?"

You see, you are looking for feedback and you're waiting for them to call you with it, so it is either thumbs-up or thumbs down. There's not a lot of room in the middle. Every once in a while, you get a, "Were not sure about this guy." With time, that always turns into a rejection..

Job Search Mistakes: Did I Ruin My Chances By Trying Too Hard To Get Feedback? | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

Someone messaged me with this question, Where some people get the idea that is a good idea . . . I hope it was just that they were young and bullied by parents.

Summary

Someone wrote to me. I'm not going to read the entire question. I'll just simply say, they were concerned that they jeopardized their chances by trying too hard to get feedback. Now, when I messaged them to ask what are they doing that they thought might have been too much? They eventually told me that in the last week that he emailed the recruiter 25 times.
I can only pause when I hear that. 25 times! Now what's very clear to me is that what this person has done whose been the recipient of this abuse is direct all their emails into junk because on what planet is it okay to email someone 25 times in a week?
Like, let's assume it's Monday through Friday for a second. 25 messages. Five messages a day. Have you heard anything? Have you heard anything? When are you bringing me back in? Have you heard anything? Weird? Where did that idea come up that this was a good thing?
Now I get the idea that this person might be young and thus a parent told them to do this. Folks, don't listen to your parents' advice when they tell you, "it shows that you are interested!" No, it doesn't. It shows that you're an idiot and that you have no concern for someone else's time. You have no interest in being respectful of another individual and their needs, as well. All you've done is cause yourself to be rejected, because if they were in any way interested, number one, they might have gotten back to you somewhere in the first couple of emails and, number two, is let's go extra step. They may not have been prepared to commit to you or to someone else or to anyone yet because they were still interviewing.
But you showed gumption! You showed you were an idiot. In no universe that I've ever seen is it okay to send someone 25 messages in a one week period of time and expect to not wind up in junk mail. And their email filters may have already directed you to spam without this person even doing a thing because this is abusive.
Look, I know you want feedback, I know you want to know if you're going to be considered. But this is not the way to go around it. It's kind of like, you have to realize that if a firm is interested in you, you want to be with someone who want to be with you. AND you can't chase them down, stalk them, hunt them down like they're animals and expect to get a favorable result.
What you did, clearly would have turned me off. It would turn any individual off. Would you want to get 25 messages like that, in the course of a one week period of time? And imagine if it was only over two or three days!
Folks, this is ridiculous. I'll just simply say, if you're ever in a situation where your impatience and your anxiety, or the advice that you get from someone older, is to do something like this don't. Don't do it.
Instead, you are better off going for a run, being patient, going to the gym, meditating, working on something else. When they are ready to proceed, they will get in touch with you. If a week goes by from the time of the interview, and they had indicated they will be back to you within that week. A quick message that says something to the effect of, "when I met with you last Tuesday, you indicated that I might hear from you in approximately a week. I haven't heard as of yet. I just want to see if I was still under consideration, or whether that ship has sailed?" That's a metaphor for "I'm no longer under consideration.
Never, ever do something like that because, I can assure you your name is in their memory banks clearly as a lunatic. And do you think that person doesn't go to another organization and remember? Do you think even if they don't go to another organization, they don't spend part of their day talking about this idiot who emailed them 25 times in a week? Yeah, I remember.

Is It a Good Sign When The Recruiter Says They Will Have Feedback By the End of the Day Tomorrow? | JobSearchTV.com

A reasonable question from someone who is trying to read the tea leaves about what is going on after a second interview,

Summary

The question I received is, "Is it a good sign that I got a call for interview within 24 hours of my sending application?"

To me, what it is a good sign of is that the firm has a degree of efficiency and how it deals with applications. It doesn't mean anything else. Superficially, all that they have determined is that your background MIGHT fit the job.Period. You have no idea how many other people may have applied and who you are competing with. You may have no idea whether it was a stroke of luck that they have to be online at that particular moment to respond to your resume. It doesn't mean anything.

Yes, you could have been rejected. That could also happen within 24 hours. That they responded within 24 hours doesn't mean a thing. Not a single thing.

Focus on the fact that you now have to deliver your knowledge to them in a way that they are going to be impressed. Focused on practicing for the interview, because that is really the important thing. That they responded within 24 hours… Forget about it. You are overthinking this.

EP 1295 Should I email the recruiter or my interviewer? What are some tips in order to hear back after I email either one of them?

Summary

The question is, "I haven't heard back from anyone after my interview. Should I email my recruiter or the interviewer? What are some tips I should know before I hear back from either 1 of them?"

Here is one observation-- I don't know you recently you did the interview. If you did it today and you haven't heard it by 4 o'clock it may just be too soon for them to get feedback. Also, I don't know what kind of recruiter this is. Are you talking about a corporate recruiter? Third-party recruiter? I'm going to try to address a lot of my contingencies with this answer but, in the meantime, let's work on this question..

I haven't heard back from anyone.. You obviously want to hear back. Here's the easiest way to hear back-- Knock their socks off. Blow everyone else out of the water. Impress the heck out of them so that they go, "Oh! We cannot let this person leave our offices. . We cannot let them leave our domicile without a job offer!

Obviously, this did not happen. So let's go on to the next scenario.

Sure I will email the recruiter or my interviewer? Let's start by looking at the recruiter. Corporate recruiter? Third-party recruiter? If you are introduced by a third-party recruiter, definitely contact them,,,, not the interviewer. If it is a corporate recruiter,, it depends on what the initial introduction was. If you are introduced by someone within the firm and the 1st interview that you did was with the hiring manager and then with the recruiter, go to the hiring manager 1st because you are introduced by someone to them..

If this was just, "I answered an ad. They called me and it was a good interview," contact the corporate recruiter.. They are really running point on the relationship with you. They may not have heard anything yet.

How can you get some feedback after the interview in order to hear back? The easiest thing to do is, at the end of the last meeting that you had, get a sense of their timeline.

When they asked, "So do you have any questions for us," go through a series of questions.. When they ask, "Is there anything else," ask them, "Could you give me a sense of your timeline for next steps? This way, I have reasonable expectations about what I might hear back from you. . I know it is not cast in stone. I know it may take a few days longer, . But, if., "You will hear from me tomorrow if it is good news,," and that is a week later, I know my answer. that's one thing.

Another way that you can do it is, when they ask, "Is there anything else,," ask, "What were your impressions of me today? What did you perceive my strengths to be? Where could I do better? And I compare with others that you've interviewed?"

You see, you are looking for feedback and you're waiting for them to call you with it, so it is either thumbs-up or thumbs down. There's not a lot of room in the middle. Every once in a while, you get a, "Were not sure about this guy." With time, that always turns into a rejection..
