Last week a recruiter presented me with a potential job offer and asked if I would like to proceed with an interview. Within less than 24 hours I replied that the job looks good and gave them my available times for an interview (Which are extremely flexible).

Since then I have heard - nothing.

I did e-mail them about a day ago just saying that I my documents are ready and that I will be out of town for a few days but will still be free for an interview if the position is still available. Another 24 hours have passed and again, no reply.

The job offer was/is excellent in my mind, and had everything I wanted which is why I had my hopes up.

For the record I do have more than 1 recruiter, I've probably sent out over 25 e-mails though the majority have not gotten back to me. I am a "minority" (Not African-American) if that matters.

The recruiter probably filled the position, and had no other interest in you. Keep looking for recruiters, or, if you can time it up right, apply for a cushy EPIK position.

If it were me, I'd pay the prick no more mind. Antoher job offer will come along, and hopefully it'll come from someone who return emails.

You're just a number to a recruiter, a dollar sign. Maybe the employer liked someone better. If you are a minority it may be more difficult for the recruiter to easily find you a job (unfortunately).

Just gotta keep trying. I agree that the position was likely filled or something else happened such as a white person or female applied for the job also and you got put on the back burner.

My recruiter called in the middle of the night and left me a message about a position. By the time I had woken up the position was no longer available. Sometimes it happens just that quickly.

If you are not in country then this will happen quite a bit. They favour face to face interviews.
