I ask, not because I did that great and expect calls right away, but because my number has changed from the original resume to the updated one. Someone else has the old number now. I can easily see someone at a firm mistakenly calling the old number and leaving me a message there. But my email has remained the same.
Also, I am pretty sure I saw this asian girl get a telephone call back on Friday afternoon.
I have one that did a phone call-back, followed up by an email, but another one only left a voicemail message on Friday and did not follow up with an email.
I am the poster who asked the original question. I've had two CBs so far, one by email, the other by phone (voicemail). The phone-only one really has me worried about the others now. The voicemail of the person who has my old phone number doesn't say his or her name, just the automated "you have reached (555) 555 5555" greeting, so they would have no way to know it's the wrong number. OK I'll stop worrying about this, nothing I can do. My thank you emails did have my new number in the sig.
The majority of callbacks I received last year were by phone. I'd send updates to the recruiters pronto. Did you give updated copies of your resume to the interviewer?
I did, to all but one, and for the life of me I can't remember which one. Yikes. I walked out before I realized that they never asked me.
I do think it is kind of crazy to merely call about something this important and not follow up on email. What a strange practice.
