I have been approached by a recruiter recently and I was waiting for a contact to know if I went on the interview process.
Meanwhile I received another a missing call of a number I didn't had on my contacts address. Hoping it was the recruiter I call them back. To my surprise it was another recruiter who wanted to talk with me. He told me to hang down and he would call me in two minutes. After a couple of minutes he call me and we talked.
I usually don't call back to numbers of missing calls, because I think if they are interested in reaching me, at least they will call me twice or reach by other means (email, LinkedIn, Facebook...). Is this a good assumption with recruiters? Do they normally call twice or try to reach candidates by other means if the first time fails?
My fear is I might have lost opportunities not calling back in the past (at least when I was actively looking for a job).
- Both recruiters got my telephone number from a website where my CV is loaded.
- I am based on Spain (if this might affect)
- The positions where related to my experience and skills
- I finished the degree recently and I am pursuing a master in Bioinformatics
