I live in Canada and applied for a job in a different city within the same province. Recruiter responded for an initial phone interview and we supposed to make an appointment. I replied to him with my availability (pretty flexible). And the recruiter didn't respond me back. I'm not sure how I can send a nice reminder or follow up email. Also I'm concerned if he noticed my location and changed his mind. I want to mention explicitly that I want to relocate.

I'll thank for any comment or help.

Just ask, it's in the recruiter's best interest to get you a job (that's how they make their money) so if anything you're doing them a favour by making sure you land something via their referral.

A simple email like this would do:

Hi [name], just wondered if we were scheduling a phone interview soon? [I'm flexible on the time of the call]/[Available between (time - time) on (date - date)]. My phone number is ...

Recruiters will typically have several candidates they're talking to (for several jobs) and some things slip through the cracks.

Best of luck on your job hunt!

  • No worries, I had the same thoughts when hunting a while ago and it really isn't a problem! Jan 25, 2019 at 17:35
  • Hi Jay, as promised. Worked well. I have passed 2 small none technical interviews and there is another technical interview coming
