Ghosting An Employer

If you're a hiring manager, you've probably had a promising job candidate suddenly stop answering your calls, texts and email. As early as 2019, more than four out of five companies have been ghosted by a job candidate at least once.

The behaviour stems from the world of online dating, where ghosting is de-facto and pain-free (for the ghoster) way to say: "I'm not interested." Since job hunting, like hooking up, now takes place primarily online, it's only logical there's crossover behaviour.
