What Does It Mean When A Recruiter Calls And Asks If You Are Available for Feedback? (VIDEO)


Here’s a question from someone that proves that recruiters can’t win.

Summary

"What does it mean when a recruiter asks if you are available for a call to give you feedback?" Boy! This is a tough question!

You know, recruiters just can't do it right. Here, they want to know if you're available for a phone call to give you feedback. Job hunters also agonize over the fact that they don't get phone calls to receive feedback! So, what does it mean? Hmmm. It means that they want to know if you're available for a call so that they can give you feedback, dummy! I'm being obnoxious about it because it's a stupid question. They just want to know; it doesn't mean anything good. It doesn't mean anything bad.

The one thing out of the literal words that you might add on to them is that this is a courteous organization, particularly if they are telling you if you have been rejected. How many people complain (and this is third-party, and corporate recruiters) that they never get feedback??? Everyone goes through this experience! Everyone goes through that hell of no word back.

I know third-party recruiters go through with their clients, eventually, they get tired of saying, "We haven't heard anything back yet. I will let you know when I hear." Then, we never hear anything! We interpret that as being, "No interest." You interpreter lack of calling as being rudeness.

Well, I'll tell you, here we have a situation where firm is trying to be courteous, good or bad. Good – – they obviously want to move on to the next step, whatever that is. Bad – – they're going to tell you, mano a mano, mano a femo, femo a mano, femo a femo, whatever it is, they are going to tell you what their clients decision is! Maybe you can elicit "why." Please don't argue. If they tell you why you might ask some follow-up questions. If you are talking to a recruiter, there were really no more than what they are prepared to tell you and, if they do, this is what they believe they are sanctioned to say or else they have aggravation or they give their hiring manager aggravation. If they do that, they get in trouble.

Think back during the interview if you get a rejection and see whether the your experience correlates with what you are being told if this is a rejection. If it isn't a rejection, hey! You're on to the next step! If this was your 1st interview, you are on the your 2nd interview. If this was the 2nd interview, you are on to the 3rd. It could be that they are ready to make an offer. At least you know what the decision is and what their feedback is.
