    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through their website and reached out via LinkedIn to the recruiter. The recruiter provided me with his direct contact information and indicated he would like to talk to me about opportunities at Nelnet. I reached out via email and phone call. I never heard back from the recruiter. I understand not being contacted if they felt I didn't meet their requirements, however, asking me to reach out and not calling back is very unprofessional.
