    Interview

    There have been a couple of threads on LinkedIn and elsewhere lately talking about candidates being "ghosted" by employers - recruiters, hiring managers, etc. I've had this happen to me more than a few times during my career in the tech industry and oftentimes wonder why a so seemingly simple task (shepherding a candidate through the interview process, not to mention simple baseline politeness), which also happens to be a recruiter's job, has become an insurmountable task for so many.

    Case in point: Rosetta Stone. Applied for a position there and was reached out to by the recruiter asking for an initial phoner. Times agreed, meeting set. Day of the phoner the recruiter emails to say that "the day is getting away" from her and could we reschedule later in the week. Sure, of course. Forward my availability and await a reply. Two more days go by and I finally get a reply saying (paraphrasing), "Oh, no. Those times won't work for me." Okay, thanks for wasting still more of my time. The recruiter mentions she just might skip her involvement and put me directly in touch with the hiring manager, so please stand by. Okay. I send her a link to my availability so we don't have to play the email scheduling dance. A few more days go by without hearing anything and against my better judgement I email her, reaffirming my interest in the position and asking if we could make some time to chat. Next day she replies back with some line that the hiring manager is so-so-oh-so busy the entire week, but she would touch base with the HM (when? who knows) and follow up. Yeah, sure. All signs point to that being exactly what you're going to do.

    Two weeks later, I receive an email from the recruiter saying the hiring manager was going to stick with the batch of candidates she already had and thanks, goodbye, etc. One day later I receive a canned thanks-no-thanks email stating that the recruiter was "impressed with our conversation" -- except, that conversation never actually happened. Thanks for the canned reply there.

    And so, welcome to the less-than-stellar recruiting/hiring practices in the Seattle tech industry. Frustrating, tacky, unprofessional. It's amazing that people who are the first contact and, as such, the face for their company, fail to understand the basic customer service and responsiveness their role requires. All it does is tarnish the company's brand - not to mention waste the time of those candidates they've reached out to. No one's time is free. Why then, do so many recruiters think that the time of qualified applicants is theirs to waste as they see fit?

    Oh no, those times don't work for me.
