A few days ago I was contacted by a recruitment consultant via a LinkedIn message. He wanted to discuss an opportunity with me and gave a brief outline. I am not looking for a new job, but it was interesting and in a market area that meant I might be able to refer someone from my network even if it was not suitable for myself, so I responded positively.
With a couple of further messages back and forth we agreed a time of day and the number he could call me on. He didn’t. At the end of that day I messaged him to say he obviously had had a problem or clash, so I would make myself available the next day. Silence.
Why no simple response, even if it was “something’s changed, can we cancel our discussion?” - i.e. good manners.
