Job Seekers Want to Know: “Why Don’t You Call Us Back?”

Care to help us out here? 

Last week, my colleague Anthony Balderrama, a writer for our job seeker-focused blog, The Work Buzz, told me: 

“We often hear from job seekers who wonder why, when they apply – or even interview – for a position, they never hear back from the employer at all.”

So why is this, exactly?  Anyone can understand – especially if you’re getting up to 75 resumes for a single position – that you can’t always get back to every single applicant…but to never so much as e-mail or call someone back after an interview? Now, that just seems cold (not to mention that it’s also potentially damaging to your employment brand). 

But like the understanding best friend in a classic romantic comedy, we know there are two sides to every story.  That said…would you mind, dear readers, indulging us?  What would make you–or what has ever made you–not call a candidate back?

Is it simply that you don’t have the time? Or perhaps it’s the candidate’s responsibility to follow up with you? (Or are there are some things so awkward that even mustering a generic “Thanks, but no thanks” e-mail is impossible?)

Please share your ideas in the comments section below!

I just got done reading a response that said "90% of the resumes I read come from people that are not qualified for the position". Wow, we need to take a step back and look at that number. There are hiring manager out there that are leaving 90% of job seekers out of the job market because they (subjective) don't feel the applicants are not qualified? It sounds to me like we (hiring manager) have created our own barrier to hiring the right candidate. 99% percent of the jobs seekers out in this world fabricate what is on their resume. How can you sit here and say that 10% percent of the job seeking population lied better on their resumes? 


Anyone who thinks that 90% of anyone applying for a job is not a good candidate, you should not be in the position you are in. Writing resumes is a separate skill-set by itself. Just because a resume isn't written the way you want it to be written, doesn't necessarily mean that someones is lacking the skills to perform different task within a position.


I will stop here, because I could right a book on bad hiring practices.

I really have enjoyed reading this.  I'm looking for a new job right now because my current position isn't cutting it.  I really don't enjoy having to work this hard and get paid this poorly.  http://www.montessoriofwoodridge.com

I have no problem with An interviewer telling me they will let me know if I have a job within a certain amount of time, because then if I don't hear from them, it means I didn't get it. What makes me made is being told they will call you back, or they have you call back another time. 

 

That is just toying with my emotions. I understand they are busy, but surely it doesn't help to have people call you back tomorrow everyday for a week does?

I've been looking for a job for about two month's now.  Employers go as far as telling me that they would love for me to work for them.  They will call me later, that day even. They have told me specific times they were going to call, and to be ready to receive it. They act excited, and naturally I've been excited.  Four o'clock roles around and no call.  I've done follow up with these places.  Been avoided by the same people who were so excited to speak to me before.  I understand they get a lot resumes.  However it is down right abusive to have your head filled with good news, only have it blown off two hours later.  There are a million ways to blow someone off that are better than that,  and way less hurtful.

I had an interview it went well. That same day the manager of the store emailed me for a second one, he basically told me I got the job He wanted me to come back a certain day. I went back the day he told me and filled out some information on his computer at work. I called in a few weeks ago and he told me to be patient and he would call me when he is ready to train me -_- . It's been a month since I've been into the store not have I received a call or an email back from the company

Simple - the HR person doesn't like to deliver bad news.  Goes right up there with bad at handling rejection.  To answer the call from you and tell you didn't get the job goes right up there with inabilities to handle difficult situations.   In this day and age, a mass email stating "we reviewed, going with another candidate, etc." is not that big of deal.  After the actual interview, a quick email that states "You made it difficult with your excellent qualifications but we are going with another candidate for the position but would like to keep your resume on file, etc."  It is rude, it is unprofessional and it is a poor example of the duties that they are charged with.  It is an HR position for gosh sakes - do your job!  One day, the way you have handled these applicants will come back and bite you.

I can understand not getting a call after submitting a resume, and maybe even after the first interview. But after a second interview, the company is definitely showing interest in you. I think the HR Dept should have the decency to contact the candidate and let them know either the process is still ongoing, or the position has been filled. It's been two weeks since my second interview. I sent a thank you email with references after the second interview, and I haven't heard anything yet. No call or email.

I just had an interview and I believed it went very well.  After the interview, the owner asked me to get back to him with a salary requirement. I sent him the salary request a couple of days later.  I realize, I should have pressed for a job offer before getting into salary numbers. The owner responded by saying that he was interviewing another person this week and that he would get back to me after that. Should I respond to him just to emphasize that I am a better fit for his company?

I can see I am not the only one who did not get an answer after the interviews. It is simply a question of good manners and politeness, even if the person interviewed did a bad interview, stinks, is stupid or for whatever reason. I work with the media. When I promise to a journalist I will call him or her back, I do so, even if I was not able to get in touch with the person he needed to interview, just to let him know I am not forgetting about him. Medias appreciate. I do that with everybody, and it hurts to see that not all HR people show the same decency.  When a company does not call back after an interview, it is purely bad manners. Manners are not what they used to be. Or is it a North American thing about not giving an answer to candidates who did an interview? If there are Europeans or people from other continents who read this, let me know if this lack of manners in the interview process is seen in your country as well, I am curious. At least, I can see I am not the only one who had to go through this.

 

Once, I called back the HR person and the director, it had been six weeks after the interview, they had told me they would call me back within a month. They had hired someone. I had travelled more than 50kms to get there. I gave them hell! Of course, I don't think I will ever have the chance to work there, but I don't care as I know so much how lousy this place is!

When you are down to the top 5 and you interview them, you are OBLIGATED to get back to them via email, letter, or call. I don't care who you are. Of course, you cannot get back to 75 people who submitted resumes but you CAN get back to 5 or less people who went to a lot of trouble to interview with your lousy company. Show some grace. Class. Professionalism. RESPECT and get back to the people you interview. The only good thing is no one of any talent and quality wants to work for a company that cannot do this anyway. If you are a company with high turnover, it's probably your fault and it won't change unless you do.

“What would make you–or what has ever made you–not call a candidate back?”

Lack of professionalism is a vast “gap” in HR. Face it; it is not only a hiring manager who is involved in the hiring process. Lack of personnel and skills and poor communication between departments is a major trouble factor in any organizational structure.

It could be one resume or 100s per day, does not really matter, every single person should get a respond.

However, if a “candidate” just waiting for responds from the company without calling or e-mailing after few days for an update is not seeking an employment too serious.

It is not against the “hiring game” process to call or e-mail HR with a simple question, such:

“Hi, recently I applied for such and such and I just wondering if you’ve received my resume and if not or if yes can you please guide me how can I contact your HR department and who should I speak with?!”

While communicating on the phone or through e-mail you can get a better “picture” about the company and its professional level. If “they” do not know or being rude, if resumes being lost and thrown away without responds, I personally would not want to work for and with this company. However, if “they” stated let me get your information, so someone could get back to you. You should wait at least a week and then contact them again if “they” did not respond.

So please do not hesitate for an update if no one contacted you. It is not begging for work, just a simple curiosity about your message.

Quite simply one of the reasons candidates don't hear back is because a decision was never made. All cases must pass through multiple hands and sit on desks and never get looked at. Everyone is paralyzed with fear for their own jobs so no one will pull the trigger and make a decision.

Sean

My opinion on it: At the very least you should get a courtesy email- "Thank you for your interest in X, however we have decided etc.." Thats all it does not have to be personable or even very friendly.

Now if you are one of those lucky few who actually got an interview whether by phone or in person (especially in person) then yes you better damm get a response.

Yes being told "No we don't want you" sucks, it sucks no one likes being turned down. But what hurts more is just never knowing, Ok you don't want to hire me I get it but at least have the decency to tell me.

Hey People. I NEED HELP!!! I had an interview and the company called my references a week later. I called them to check on my status and they said that my application was complete and that how i have to wait for HR to call me. What does that mean? Did i get the job? they also said to call back in 2 weeks if they did not call me. So frustrated because i need a job and need to know if i will get hired or not.

Why don't we have laws on this? If you can't handle the number of people applying don't post the job or hire someone who can! I hate in the few interviews I had that they say oh we will let you know next week or we got other people to interview. I never hear anything. Don't lie to me. I do followups ect. I understand you can't respond to ever resumes. At least respond to who you interview, or who apply in person. One company every time I apply through the companies website I never here anything However I apply through craigslist.com I get a response. Why it it that craigslist seems to have more current jobs in my field then Careerbuilder? I am in the National Guard and deploying in the fall. I want to know how can I deploy for the USA but not get a job from the USA? One job I found online last week I called on. They said the director(person who hires was out), and took a message. I called again this week same job. Why would you post a job then disappear? I hate when companies post jobs but do not post their name. What are they hiding? The days of filling out an application or send in a resume are gone. You have to play games. It is who you blow not who you know. A Bachelors now equals a High School diploma. We bail out big corporations and give tax brakes to companies that cut jobs. Were is my/our bailout? Today on the interest there is stories how BP is doing well. WTF 10 people died when the well exploded in the golf they should be in jail.

I have had the same problem Had three interviews in one day hiring mgr, VP of group, and a senior rep. Hiring mgr was very enthusiastic and even walked me out saying that she would definitely be in touch with me within one week. The VP gave a one month time frame and asked if I would like to go back for my certification in project management to which I jumped at the chance and he responded great i love to have people on my team who are willing to learn. I have written the thank you letters sent out the following day and either emailed or called the following weeks without a response and now that one month has gone by I still have not had a response. It is very aggravating and disheartening to be treated like this.

Someone should create a website where interviewees can post whether particular companies called back or not, and how the experience went. The overall statistics would likely give future applicants pause before applying to one place over another...and the employer conduct at the people level would finally become visible to all - including their own executive staff who may have no idea. :)

Applied for a job way back in Jan 2010, didn't receive a phone interview until March, had in-person interviews in both June and August, which I had to purchase airline tickets and rent a car to attend.
Throughout the process, I have received absolutely no update from HR as to whether I advanced to the next round until the next interview was requested. This is despite my multiple after-interview thank you letters.
It's now October, and I ran into an employee of their organization at a networking event only to find out that the company has since "frozen" the position.

There's an old saying, "Never burn a bridge because you may have to cross over it again." Company's should think about this because you never know when you'll see this applicant and/or his connections in the world again.

Indeed it is cold and unprofessional not to email back a brief "rejection" letter after an INTERVIEW. After someone took the time to get nicely dressed and groomed, spent money on gas, a new haircut, and took up valuable job searching time for an interview it makes sense just to get back to them.

Common courtesy is dead, there is no denying that.

I am an unemployed HR Director with 20 years of experience. I got laid off due to "complexing" and have been looking for the "right" job for over a year. I have been on both sides. I agree that it is very difficult to get back to everyone who submits an application/resume. Thus the use of phrases like, "Only candidates in whom there is an interest will be contacted."

I've had 2 face-to-face interviews in the last few months that seemed to go well. I sent my Thank-You notes; even sent an email 10 days later to reiterate my interest. Didn't hear a thing. I guess I got the clue about one job when I looked at a career website and the position was re-posted.

Follow up on a company's part is a PR opportunity. And if you're going to treat me this way as an applicant, then how will you treat me as an employee?

As an HR Professional I ALWAYS followed up with a candidate who interviewed. If an HR person has time to shop on line or chat on Facebook (not that they all do, but I've seen my share of goofing off in my 20 years and have goofed off as well), he or she has time to send a scripted email to an applicant or make a brief phone call. Giving bad news is never comfortable, but I can look at myself in the mirror every day because I know I did the right thing.

Patting myself on the back? You're ding-dang right! If being in HR has taught me anything it's that we are ALL expendable and I'm not too good sitting in my little HR office to at least respond to someone who is out there beating the pavement and taking their valuable time to interview with me.

Just my two cents worth...

I worked as a recruiter for a large company. We often interviewed many candidates in a week's time. We had a system in place to insure candidates received follow up letters after interviewing. It is just courteous and professional to respond to an individual that has given their time to professionally follow up. However, it is sad to say, some HR individuals can be very arrogant, unprofessional individuals at times. They do not realize it makes it harder on our profession as well.

I’ve applied to approximately 180 positions over the past 6 months, all directly through a company’s career site. I am finding that I am getting a rejection letter, albeit a form letter, about 20-25% of the time. The rest of the time I never receive any response. I should note that the vast majority of these companies are Fortune 500 and one would think they would have the infrastructure in place to keep candidates informed of their status (i.e. you’ve been rejected).

If it makes anyone feel any better, out of the 180+ jobs I’ve applied to, I have yet to receive one interview request, or even phone screen. Apparently 10+ years of experience, a graduate degree, and even a prior work history with the prospective employer are just not enough to get you noticed in this economy.

Why do employers but so much stock in how well written a resume is or how well someone can interview. It is a piss poor indication on how good an employee is. First impressions are almost always wrong.

Employers lose a lot of good people and get plastic shallow workers that get in only because they know how to make a slick resume and know how to get through an interview.

It is my view that 99% of interviewers are lazy and extremely bad judges of people. They rely on quick first impressions that are seldom accurate to make important decisions.

It's like woman that fall for losers that got them because they created a false first impression. The same thing happens for workers.

Employers should stop using these worthless and tired benchmarks but of course that would take a modicum of intelligence, which if they had any, they would have a better position than some HR flunky.

Employers may get thousands of resumes but they are not interviewing thousands of people. If someone takes the time to interview they should get a letter letting them know they are not getting the job but thanking them for the time they took and the interest they showed in your company.

Remember the time they took to interview for your company is time lost on a job they may have gotten. The least an employer can do is a simple thanks but no thanks.

Maybe it is time for an employer rating system for job seekers to rate an employer. Once an employers gets a bad reputation maybe they will improve. It may be best to not seek employment from rude unprofessional and discourteous employers.

@ggdavidgarrett Do you tell them they are not qualified based off of a resume that they most likely lied on? Maybe it is a resume that didn't have details regarding the position, because that individual is tired of putting the time and effort into applying for jobs and being shot down all of the time. 


If you are leaving out 90% of resumes because you feel they are not qualified, there is a high probability you are missing out on a lot of good candidates. Its sad to see hiring manager limit themselves like this. 


You can have all the experience in the world, but when it comes time to start a new job remember; it is going to take a new employee about the same amount of time to learn the companies process, whether they have years and years of experience. Not saying you shouldn't be looking for candidates who know how to use today's basic technologies such as MS Suite. 


You sound more like a manager and not a leader. I think that leader should be the individuals that hire, and not managers. Mangers main job duties are to make as much money for the shareholder, that's it! Leaders take the time to cultivate and develop people. I encourage you to open your 10% of qualified people to 20%. You will be surprised what you find, I promise!

 @fisherwoman Exactly my problem! There are 10's of ads for CNA's in my local papers too (I have a whole journal filled with every last one I have applied to,) and they act like they are hiring, but never give you the time of day and always act like you are crazy for calling them to follow up on your application.  I think they are in the business to squeeze every last dollar out of insurance companies and/or medicare/medicaid, that they could care less about a healthy HR department.

Personally, and I mean no offense to you, but I don't believe it's Obama that has failed us. We, ourselves as a whole, have been failing in that area and others for a long time. If we as a nation are so weak to be rung out by one individual, we had nothing to stand on in the first place.

-As for those who curious as to why the interviewers dont call back...(and I am waiting impatiently on a call back- so speaking from experience..)..whatever reason it is that they dont call after an interview- remember not to let it get you down, just keep trying otherwise whats the point! Good Luck on your job searches!

Maria, I have been recruiting for over 20 years. The best thing to do is keep interviewing at different companies. Be sure you have what they are looking for. It is also a loss for a company to miss out on a really good candidate.

When someone will tell you: “you’ve got the job” then it means you’ve got the job.

Wait two weeks as you were instructed and then contact them. Do not ask them if you got the job though:)

Tell them: “I am calling you back as we agreed and I would like to know what is the status of the hiring process? And listen what they have to say.

Hopefully, they will call you before with good news, so you would not suffer this much:)

Good luck.
