Hard to progress
Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juni 2020 bei Condé Nast (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).
After submitting an online application, I was contacted the next day to complete a series of 3 written tasks. I wasn’t completely surprised as the job advert had mentioned wanting a candidate who can start as soon as possible. I was informed that based on my success in the tasks I would be invited to a first stage interview.
The tasks consisted of:
- critiquing British Vogue’s current approach to Commerce content / Affiliates and describing what you might change
-suggesting how you would update and optimise an existing shopping gallery for SEO
- creating a suitable example of “shoppable content” British Vogue’s website to demonstrate your skills.
Safe to say, this took a great deal of time. For me, it took the entirety of my weekend as I wanted to make it through to the next stage.
I submitted the tasks on a Monday and was informed on Friday in a blanket email I was bcc-ed on from the Director of Audience & Data Intelligence that out of 400 applicants, I had made the top 25. He admitted that due to both the number of applicants and the current COVID-19 working from home situation that “the process for shortlisting for Round 1 video interviews is taking a little longer than hoped, but keep your cool - this will be completed next week and you will be contacted as soon as we have time in the diary.”
However that was nearly a month ago, at the end of June. I never heard back in the week following but chalked this up to, as he said the delays due to everything currently going on. When two weeks passed I reached out for some clarity - had I perhaps been missed off of a group email or was I no longer being considered for the role? Either way, I wanted to know. Just for my own peace of mind and so I could move on with other applications.
As I said, it’s now been a month and I have been totally ghosted by Conde Nast. There has been no update. Even if the job has been put on hold due to unforeseen circumstances, I think candidates should be informed, even if it’s just a short email explaining the situation. I can’t understand why Condé Nast thinks it’s acceptable to treat candidates like this, especially after asking them to complete such time consuming tasks. It’s also quite a big ask to ask candidates to wait this long to hear back (in the miraculous situation that they finally reach out for an interview now a month later!). I can’t imagine many individuals job searching would have the privilege to wait so long just to hear back. Most likely, like myself, others have moved on and have gained employment elsewhere.
