I don’t know THE reason
But I know A possible reason (or two or many):
– You’re not what they need
– They went another direction
– They’re way too “busy”
– They hired internally
– Their budget was cut
– They don’t care to make a decision
– Management changed
– You are (this is) not a priority
– They just didn’t like you (for their own reasons)
– You were forgotten about
– They fell into an alligator swamp
– Your perceived value is not their actual value
– The relationship isn’t what you thought it was
– They don’t know how to break the bad news, so it’s easier to ignore you
If none of those work, maybe this will help you feel better:
– their loss, it’s better this way
Remember: you can’t force “them” to respond
Your goal is to find those few that have interest and try not to let the others get you down.
Post inspired by a friend recently asking why I thought he was being ignored by a potential customer when he felt he did everything right.
Which falls hand in hand when job candidates ask why they’re being ghosted.
