The Unreturned Phone Call? It’s Not You, It’s Them – ALWAYS

et-phone-homeBefore I go any further, let me make this abundantly clear: This can also pertain to emails but phone calls should still be a primary line of communication for more healthy professional interactions.

And you always want to keep the lines of communication open with employers.  So even if you don’t hear back from someone, a follow up never hurts as long as there’s been a decent amount of time given.  Next day follow ups are verging on stalking.  Just give a week or two and then reach out again.  Friendly reminder that you’re around, etc.

Whether intentionally or unintentionally, never make more out of an unreturned than just that.  A missed call.  Move on and maybe follow up down the line.

Our friends at Your Industry Insider really nail this one.  Read on.
