I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm a coach who helps people professionally in
a variety of different ways job search I think that like managing and leaving
career development, executive coaching--there's a lot of well your face question how
normal is it for recruiters to not get back to an applicant who's the application
process they've put on hold so don't let me just start off with I
don't know if this is a corporate or an agency recruiter it doesn't matter but
you know with an agency recruiter there's no incentive for them to ever
get back to you if you've been rejected because they're not going to make any
money and you're just gonna argue what normally will happen is job goes on hold
of the corporation you want to know more how long does it be on hold for not
really sure they're telling us about and whatever the amount of time is and will
be checked so you want to be checked in with as though this is this is accurate
information it's just a guess on that part could go
on forever on the corporate recruiters saw it they're fully expecting they're
going to go away and from their standpoint let's say the job is gonna
open in two to three months okay you hear - they say two to three could be
three could be more it's again and thus if the job is still available at that
time why are they better you they fully expect you're gonna get a job between
now and then and thus they're probably not going to get back they you know they
may you know email you to go by any chance he is still available and if you
aren't they don't care agency recruiter they're definitely gonna get back to you
if there's something new about the job because they haven't said that they're
gonna earn a fee but between today when the job is on hold and then when the job
maybe opens up and it may never open up oh don't expect to hear from them
because they don't care it's not as important to them
