I mean, after a phone screen and two interviews, it feels a bit unprofessional not to thank your final round of applicants for their time even if they didn't get the job. I am used to not hearing back after phone screens and such, but it irks me when employers ignore a follow up call or email after having been through several interviews with their company. I've been so picky in regards to my job hunt...I really need this next position to be the right one and it was very hard arranging those interviews around my work schedule. To not even get a response feels like a slap in the face.
I feel like for a manager to ignore an applicant they must really have WAY too much interest in the position.

I always think about it this way...every touch point to my company, whether applicant, client, or employee, affects the public perception of your business.

Smart managers realize that even the smallest voice matters, so treating everyone with dignity and respect is in your best interest. You never know when you will run into those people again.

Best of luck, sorry to hear about the snuff.

It may have been mentioned...but what industry segment are you looking into?

Today I FINALLY got a rejection email from name was mispelled and it was very impersonal...a typical email you'd get after sending off your resume, rather than a position you were in the final stages of interviewing for. Oh well...I figured that after 3-4 weeks of not hearing back. Thankfully I had a promising interview yesterday that I am submitting some writing samples to before I come in for my 2nd interview.
