The Top Frustrations Job Seekers Face — and How To Cope With Them | #datingscams | #lovescams

“Ghosting” doesn’t just happen in the dating world. The Job-Hunt and FlexJobs survey found that not hearing back from an employer is the No. 1 frustration job seekers face, with 50% citing this as an annoyance.

“It can be frustrating and confusing to send out applications and not hear back,” said Toni Frana, career services manager at FlexJobs and “As people tend to immediately assume the worst, take the time to assess the full situation. If only a few days have passed since you submitted your application, you’ll need to give it some more time. In fact, a good rule of thumb is to follow up one to two weeks after applying.”

However, be sure to check the job posting, as it may ask not to call or email after you apply.

“If you follow up anyway, the employer may think you didn’t read the full posting,” Frana said. “Be mindful of employers’ requests, and keep your job search moving forward by applying to other positions while waiting to hear back.”
