08 December 2008 Simon Says Reply To Emails
Recently I got in touch with someone at an agency. We had a chat about the possibility of working there and they said someone would be in touch by the end of the week. I received an email saying they’d call me in a few days.
I never got a call.
About a month later I followed up with an email as a polite reminder. Never got a response. We’re now about two or three months from the initial conversation I had about working with them.
This is not a rant about the fact I didn’t get a job. I really don’t mind. But I did expect someone to get back to me.
With the number of recent graduates making calls and sending emails lately, surely these people realise that not only are personal brands being tarnished here, but organisation and agency brands too? My opinion of the agency isn’t what it once was. And we all know what Gen Y’s do with brands they don’t like…
I know someone from the agency in question will be reading this. Feel free to pass it along. =]
