    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sprout Social (Chicago, IL)

    Interview

    After carefully reading the job description, I wrote a very thoughtful cover letter and was contacted for a phone interview. During my short phone call, I felt it was extremely difficult to engage with the recruiter.

    I get it, you talk to lots of people, but while I kept my energy up and shared my genuine interest in Spout (I’ve been using it for years) I was left feeling like the recruiter was just going through the motions.

    Whatever I thought about Sprout completely unraveled after this interview. I knew after our chat that I wouldn’t move on in the process, and honestly. I didn’t want to.
