Recruiter Question

Questions that Need Answers

Random question...I received a call on Friday, which I missed due to being in a work meeting. The voicemail was from a an internal company recruiter saying they wanted to interview me for a role I had applied for. I called back within 30 mins and left a voicemail. Called again on Monday, but didn't leave a voicemail.

Should I call again? or should I be patient?or should I take the hint and forget about it all together?

I've never had this happen before.

Curious on peoples opinions. Cheers...Matt

You know what they say about the squeaky wheel : )

:)...haha. I like the way you think.

Sounds like the recruiter needed to make a deadline to produce their shortlist. They probably spent the afternoon calling people to get their three target interviews booked and then stopped caring. Unfortunately, this happens a lot, especially when they aren't really a devoted TA person. Sometimes with restricted budgets companies pass off HR and recruitment to their payroll specialist.

If it is a really attractive job, and you want to pursue it, find out who the hiring manager is and call them directly (instead of the recruiter). You can pitch yourself then.

What kind of role was it, by the way?

Thanks for the thorough response Dustin. I will be trying figuring out who the hiring manager is and going that avenue.

The role was for a Strategic Program Manager.

Cheers,

Matt
