Why is there no response after an interview?

By japataky ·
I have had many interviews (telephone, onsite and in some cases second interviews)and in most cases I do not receive any response from the interviewer or company. Obviously, if I get the job there is a positive response, which hasn't happened lately, if I don't get the position there is hardly ever a response giving me any information. I have actually tried contacting the interviewer and still have not received any information for months, even after trying multiple contacts.

IT companies are fking a$$holes, I had the same experience when I was job hunting. I had 2, 4 hour interviews with one company (DMT), collected cards from everyone INCLUDING the receptionist. No one ever got back to me, even after 3 follow up emails, each to a different person and the receptionist.

I think it's just a fact of life.

The only one I ever got a call back from, is where I work now, was still a month after the interview, I had totally forgotten about the place already.

IT companies are not the only ones

I was once working in a club where a member applied for a job at a zoo and got a rejection letter, the first he had ever received. He was in his 60s.

They consider it a waste of resources

Quite often when you do get feedback, it's useless or total BS.

I've had too forthright, not enough of a yes man, not an ADO expert, no lotus notes expereince (was never mentioned except in the rejection!)...

Just keep boogering in.

At the "any questions for us part" of the interview try something like.

"Have I said anything that would put you off offering me the position"? May be you'll get a few clues while you are there, generally though it's out of sight, out of mind.
