Potential employer doesn't follow up

Q. Please tell me the protocol for a job seeker who submits a résumé and is told “action will be taken in one week.” I waited one week and two days before calling to follow up. I’ve now called three times, and the person who advertised the position hasn’t returned my calls. Shouldn’t professional courtesy dictate a response?

A. Yes, but this employer doesn’t seem to care. So move on. Job hunting is a numbers game—the more potential employers you target, the greater the odds one of them will come through. If you get shoddy treatment, don’t squander your energy. Take that same energy and redirect it toward finding a more desirable employer.
