Not really asking for any advice here, just sharing a couple of recent experiences and wondering if any of you have been running into this frustration, especially during this extra challenging time!
So I've been doing a lot of networking, especially on Linkedin, and was fortunate enough (or so I thought) to land an interview. Since I am in the middle of a career pivot, I was super excited to have the opportunity to speak to someone in my target career space. Well, as it turned out, this person strung me along via messaging and email, pushing our meeting to the next week, and then the next. And then after setting a date & time, ghosted me. We never spoke. I tried to follow up: nothing.
And then yesterday I had a phone interview scheduled with another employer; we had confirmed via email the day before. Aaand...nothing, nada, zip. No call. And I don't have her phone #. So again, I emailed to follow-up and have not received a response.
I know there's not a lot one can do, except to keep emotions in check and continue to go forward. Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?
