Nanos11211194dI think next time I'm going to word my application something like this:
"You have until time/date to make a decision on hiring me or not, after that time, my application is hereby withdrawn."
Yup, if I take the time to apply, in many cases even prepare some portfolio/resume/exercises -- The very least they can do is give a short response.
I usually just state in my application
"As a professional, I appreciate honest, direct communication. I'm currently considering multiple offers, so please respond as soon as possible. If my application is not selected, please provide some constructive feedback, as I believe in growing as an engineer, and in the value of building long-term relations in my network"
If I get rejected, I send them a link to a survey.
If they do not respond, I keep calling three times a week. Out of principle.
It once took over 60 phonecalls.... "I found a different job, but you have not fulfilled my request for feedback yet"
Eventually they filled in my online survey.
I used to give up after 100+ phone calls, emails and popping in, in person to the company when I was passing.
Now I think, don't bother giving them any chances at all, I'll just waste my time doing so.
And I'm not going to do more than just one interview !
Doing 3 and then being ghosted by them, is a huge waste of time !
I can't spend my life going to job interviews !
Not when they clash either !
Reminds me of relationships..
