    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (United States)

    Interview

    I was ghosted after my interview. The interview went pretty well and I thought that we clicked but clearly that wasn't the case as the recruiter ghosted me. It would be nice to receive some feedback.
