Recruiter reveals the reasons 'ghosting' is a huge no no

Remember that date you went on a couple of months ago? You went for dinner, maybe saw a movie, it was all going well and they said they’d call – but they never did. And now it’s weeks later and you’re questioning all of your social skills and you’re still unsure what you did wrong.

    I was surprised in reading the article that recruiters like to receive a thank you for having seen the candidate. I have never known that to occur or feature but am always happy to learn.
    The part I agree wholeheartedly with is letting people know.
    Successful and unsuccessful people deserve the same courtesy and respect for their effort and time. 'Thanks but no thanks' leaves a much more appreciative feeling in the minds of everybody and encourages candidates to try again especially where feedback is really honest and helpful.
