I've just had the strangest thing happen to me. I applied for 2 roles within the space of 2-3 days. One at a major bank and one at a big strategy consulting firm.
The roles are very similar and are in a niche area. I have been building a profile in this little niche for a while now and felt I was a very close fit to the roles
I had a screening interview / chat with the HR from the bank and it all seemed positive with the HR lady telling me to contact her again in a few days. No response since, phone seems to be permanently go to voicemail and no response to emails
Again, with the strategy consulting firm. They got in touch, wanting to arrange an initial interview and then all of a sudden stopped responding to emails also.
Obviously it's not some big conspiracy! Just want to draw a line under it, but trying to make some sense of it. Do I continue chasing up with them or just take it as a very unprofessional rejection.
