Not getting feedback from agency recruiters? They're not getting back to you?

That is feedback. It's just not the feedback that you want to hear. You want to have a conversation with them. But they are giving you feedback because the fact of the matter is, if an agency recruiter isn't getting back here, it's for one of two reasons. They haven't heard from your client, or you've been rejected.

Now, if it's four weeks, you've been rejected. If it's two weeks, you're still on the fence, you might still be under consideration. Drop them a quick email, just simply say, "I haven't heard from you since my interview. What's going on? Bring me up to date. If it's a rejection, just tell me. I don't mind."

But the idea that they're not giving you feedback is incorrect on your part. Hope you found this helpful. Visit Job Search TV on YouTube. There's a lot more there.
