Has anyone ever had a job interview and then just never heard back from the place?
I don't expect every place I send a resume to to give me an answer. But, job interviews are another story. It seems places should at least give me the courtesey of saying thanks but no thanks. Increasingly it seems, I go on job interviews, send a thank you note, and then just never, ever hear a word back from the place. I'm starting to think that there's something wrong with me.
These have been interviews where I generally think they have gone well. Eg the one a few weeks ago...called me within 24 hours of getting my resume, had a 45 minute phone interview later that day, and a 3 hour lunch interview the following day, with a promise to call me the next day. That was three weeks ago, and he has not returned my calls or emails.
I had another one where they gushed about how impressed they were with my writing sample, and telling me how various things on my resume were exactly what they were looking for. I sent them a thank you, and a follow up call and email, and never got a call or letter back.
There have been a few others in my lifetime, but these are the more recent examples.
Is this normal? Can you think of something that I might be doing to cause this?
