Be kind

A recruiter called me for an interview a while ago.

After having set of interviews, she said: "I will get back to you very soon".

She called me a month later saying: “I am sorry for being late. I had an emergency leave because of family issues”.

I asked her immediately: “How is your family now?"

She explained what she has been through for few minutes! And I was just listening!

She ended the call saying: "Thank you very much for listening to me, really appreciate that and regarding the position they have chosen someone else because they think you are overqualified!"

"Cool! I wish him the best :)"

Three months later, she called me telling me she has found something better for me that matches my qualifications and she is more than happy to invite me for an interview!

Moral of the story

If they did not call back, do not take it personally; maybe they have an issue getting back to you. Everyone has struggles!
