A little annoyed and not sure how to move forward, so any advice is appreciated.
I applied to a large tech company over two months ago for an internship by giving my resume to the recruiter when she came to my university. The recruiter came back, I think, two more times between September and now and I chatted with her all those times while she kept on reminding me that interviews for the program would take place in mid-November.
For the next month, I see some people I know start getting interviews for the program, so I touch base with the recruiter again and she reiterates that these are special cases and that the process will happen in mid-November.
Well, mid-November rolls through so I email her again and I get a response saying that they've concluded interviews for my University for the Fall and that they'll be back in the Spring (untrue, the recruiting for this program ends before December).
And now, I'm really annoyed. It seems like I wasn't going to hear anything back unless I reached out to the recruiter and now after this entire semester, I'm not even getting an interview it seems for a program that I am pretty qualified for (and got an interview for last year, as a freshman).
The person who interviewed me for the program last year asked me to keep in touch (she's now higher up in recruiting), so could I email her with my concerns (or not even, just say I want to catch up and am interested in re-applying)? Or should I email the current recruiter with an explanation of my frustration with this process?
