How often does silence follow a callback

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 26, 2012 1:26 pm

I've been waiting to hear back from a few firms I did callbacks with earlier in the month. How often do they just ignore the people they called back but didn't offer?

They will reject you, not just ignore you. It's likely that you were one of the first CBs and they are checking other people out before they get back to you.

It depends. They're not going to outright ignore you though.

The hiring committee might not meet every week. They might have postponed making a decision pending the other people they callback.

I got outright ignored by Winston CHI last year after a callback. So it does happen, but I think it's pretty rare.

EDIT: I never followed-up tho.
