Radio Silence: In the field of communications, radio silence refers to a period or condition when radios are not transmitting. In the military, this may happen due to fear that a signal might be intercepted by an enemy.
As a career seeker (and as a recruiter), we often hit radio silence after an interaction with a company (HR, internal recruiter, hiring manager, or another point of contact).
While there may be many reasons for this, I think the best way to think about this is:
“At this current moment, it’s not a high enough priority for them to solve or to get back to you (me), and it’s not a reflection on you (me).”
You, nor I, can usually change that prioritization, but what we can do is reset our station and tune into working towards other opportunities.
Reset your station. Better melodies await you…
