This 'Toxic Tip' Might Get You the Job If You've Been Ghosted, According to a Career TikToker Searching for a job is stressful, but you can take back control.
But TikTok creator Sho Dewan, who has 585,000 followers, offers a "toxic tip" that just might land you that job after the hiring manager stops communicating.
Searching for a job is stressful. In addition to the financial strain that comes with being unemployed, research by The New York Times reveals that job seekers also endure worse physical health and increased rates of depression.
So what can you do when you're left with radio silence?
Find the hiring manager's boss on LinkedIn and send them this message, Dewan suggests: "Just wanted to help provide some feedback for the recruitment process and let you know (interviewer's name) has been unresponsive after our interview on (date). Hope this isn't the usual for all candidates."
"Stay toxic," the text overlay on Dewan's video ends.
Dewan's post has nearly five million views, eliciting a range of responses — from commenters claiming his suggestion worked to those stressing that recruiters juggling many candidates can't respond to everyone.
Is staying toxic the new quiet quitting? Only time will tell.
