Employer ghosting is frustrating to say the least and not a good business practice.

I believe recruiters sometimes are inundated with applications and interviews and inevitably ghosting can happen.

I like to use post-interview follow-ups as opportunities to both thank the interviewer for their time and reiterate interest in the role, but also use the opportunity to nudge the interviewer to take action and keep yourself top of mind with them.

As a career recruiter, I've dealt with a lot of systems meant to help me sort through the hundreds of applications I might receive for each job. Unfortunately, these systems can make the application process feel like a Black Hole to the job seeker. Here are some tips to get past the ATS:
- Use keywords - look at the job posting and use the exact language that's in the description, including titles & acronyms. Be true to your own experience (don't... see more

I can relate to how you feel, at least you know you have a Real interview. I keep getting E-mails, asking Me to confirm the interview but when I click on the button, there is never any information telling Me when and where to appear, Not even a Phone interview. I don't understand these Agencies, you answer them but never get a Real interview!

@AndreFisher, you're right that it's frustrating. There are good agencies out there and usually you can visit the... see more

As the job seeker, we are on our best behavior, but recruiters and hiring managers are not. I tell myself that I wouldn’t want to work with that company anyway if they treat people like that, the way they are trying to recruit.
How many times have they asked for your Resume then they are gone, or when you have a phone interview then you never hear back from anyone.

I had a lady contact me thru Indeed. She messaged me and asked if I would like to interview. We had a phone interview and I went two days later and had another interview . She showed me around and even introduced me to some of the office people. She was supposed to contact two days later and let me know if I got the job. She didn't contact me and I have emailed her twice and she will not even respond. Very strange. I wouldn't take the job... see more

I have been experiencing employer ghosting for over 2 years. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Business and Management 10+ years of experience in my field. I’ve turned in over 300 resumes done by professionals at a cost of 700.00 and 0 interviews. I have a clean record never been fired. The one interview I did receive was for a position I was overqualified for and the manger literally said, “I’m not going to waste my time or yours because... see more

There are a lot of people posting employer ghosting on Jobcase, but no one has defined what it means. I did some research and found this:
This is the definition of "employer ghosting:

You’re communicating with recruiters or hiring managers about a promising new job, and they suddenly stop returning your messages. You’ve been ghosted.
Q: What if a potential employer stops responding to me?
A: It’s happened to all of us: You’re communicating with... see more
