WHY DOESN'T A COMPANY CALL BACK AS PROMISED?
« on: June 23, 2009, 05:45:19 PM »


Why doesn’t a company call back as promised?
Correspondence from readers including am I too old to start a new career?

The questions I’ve been getting from readers lately have a lot to do with workers’ perceptions of themselves, and how the job market is supposed to work.

Well, many of those perceptions are often wrong.

Some of you think you’re too old to change careers. Others are worried that getting a job is all about having the perfect look. And still others think companies should have some set structure when hiring.

Well, time for a little “Your Career” reality check.

Here are some of your questions:

I began my job search last summer. As a recent graduate, I went to a college fair in February figuring it was my greatest hope. I talked to about 20 different companies and submitted my resume. Many of the companies that had indicated open positions didn't have any. There were about five still with hope. Of these, I have only had contact with two. One of them I spoke to verbally. The person I spoke to asked me to call back in two weeks if I hadn't heard anything from them. I did, and I haven't heard back.

Hi,

I think you can try calling them and can find if the job is available or not.   You can tell them that you have another opportunity waiting so ask them to confirm. 

Hope it helps :)

HR can never get back to all candidates interviewed.  If you are not suitable they wont call you back.  Thy only get in touch with only suitable candidates.  Even if yu called them, they will not tell you the truth.  I think thts the practice.  However, there some multinational companies that have made it thier policies to always get in touch with candidates after interviews even if you have done unsatisfatorily.

Whenever a company tells you that they will call you.
Forget it that is a very polite and official way to dismiss someone.

To me those coys are not worth your time. Forget them. Look elsewhere but if you eager,keep trying. You will soon see my point.

They would if you have chances of being hired if not don't expect a call the minute you left the interview.  You will have the gut feeling you're in even during interviews.

Hi there!,
Company as not calling you back may be as promised doesn't mean you should not reach them.  Of course, you have to reach them if you have the contact of one of the HR person.  Introduce yourself to him/her, and tell her you just call to remind them of the promised made to call you back and since you have not heard from them.  There in, they will probably tell you why you have not heard from them and what you may likely do next.  In job search, you can't just stop trying until you get the job.  And that is the bottom line.
Thank You!
Alphonsus

yeah its difficult to actually access the HR esp 4a big coy
