    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.

    Interview

    I had 2 really great interviews, followed up multiple times, and they ghosted me.

    Sad that an industry so theoretically focused on “changing & connecting the world” doesn’t have the basic decency to simply follow up.

    People talk to each other- be mindful of the impact your ghosting may have. A candidate is a candidate, and you should treat them as a professional, not like some random girl/ guy you met online.

    Advice to recruiters & hiring manager:

    Respond to your candidate’s emails, and try to be as honest and transparent as you can about timelines. We all understand that things come up, emails don’t get sent, etc. Your candidate shouldn’t have to follow up with you post-interview (that is your job, not theirs).
