Here is my question…
I have been working at my current job for almost 3 years. It is a sales job, but the company is VERY informal and geared towards young professionals ( read: not the most organized since many employees are younger than your average office). I submitted a resume for an applicant that I thought would do really well in this environment. She passed the preliminary questionnaire, passed the phone interview and was/is in contact with the hiring recruiter. They wanted her to come in last week for a face to face, but she was getting married out of state this past weekend so they scheduled her for this last Monday (6/3) to come in. On Thursday of last week, they called to do another phone interview (2 now) that went well.
The HR lady then asked that she come in on Wednesday of this week (6/5) for face to face/ intro to the company.
Problem is, they haven’t responded to her since last Thursday with ANYTHING. No times, no locations, no follow up to her last phone interview other than “ Great, ____ will be in touch with you in regards to getting you set up next week”.
The applicant emailed the HR lady yesterday, thanking her for coordinating the interviews and asking what the next step is/ she would love to come in and meet face to face. She never got a response.
Now, “ supposedly” she is scheduled to come in tomorrow- but no one will get back with her! I told her to email them again and very directly ask the who/what/when/where’s to see if that can illicit some response. She is currently living in a different city, but is moving this Friday (6/7)… so she cannot be there at a moment’s notice, but can be there with a few hours if given the proper heads up.
What would you advise her to do? Wait it out and see if they respond to her today? Go ahead and send the email? Assume they passed on her for the job?
