1. You apply for a job at a huge company
  2. Then after just a few days you get an email "I'm interested! Let's have a call! When are you available?"
  3. You reply within 6 h
  4. You get no reply for 5 days

What is the right thing to do here? I'm quite sure one reminder can be sent: an email or call. And then? Does it mean the company is not interested if no answer is given?

    It might mean the person doing the interviewing went on vacation

  • @HLGEM Probably not. A responsible person who was genuinely interested in recruiting qualified candidates would've passed the baton.

    Or he could have gone on emergency leave, sometimes the baton does not get passed and big companies work slowly in many cases anyway.

If this is huge company there should be signature with complete contact profile on your email response

I think 5 days is sufficient time frame for follow up contact
