I was in class and had my phone on silent, when I walked out I noticed I had a missed call. I don't have caller ID so I can't check who called, but I am pretty sure it was a recruiter since my friends text me instead of calling,

should I do anything about it? Should I send some emails and follow up or mention it? More importantly, will they forget me or move on in the process?

Can you not even see the number? If you can see the number, just call them back and ask who it is. If you can't see the number, I suggest you upgrade your phone/plan... In a pinch, if you call your service provider they might be able to tell you what the number that called you was.

Whenever I've gotten called by a recruiter it was just from a "212" number, just those three digits, not the rest of the number. I have an iphone

No voicemail?

3/9/11

I have a pretty shitty/basic plan so I can't do much of anything you guys talk about. Nothing shows up, it just says I had a missed call and tells me what time it was at. I tried setting up/accessing my voice mail and it didn't work..

am I fucked?

3/9/11

if no voicemail, it wasnt a recruiter bruh

3/9/11

just checked, I don't have voice mail on my cellphone.

NOW am i fucked?

why would you not have voicemail on your phone? do you expect people to just call you back? think it is pretty common to have a professional sounding vmail recording throughout recruiting.

You live in 2011 and have no caller id?

Not much I can do about the voice mail thing now, its already done, I'll take it into consideration for the future though.

Do recruiters typically call back?

They will probably try to call back, but if you are 100% sure doesn't hurt to send an email saying you missed the call and would like to set up a time to talk. Should take care of it.

You don't have caller ID or voicemail? Are you using Gordon Gecko's phone from the first movie???

3/9/11

troll? no one owns a phone that doesn't have either caller ID or voice mail

3/9/11

Wow, simply wow....

3/9/11

^ Some basic phone plans restrict those features.

OP, if you're planning to work in finance, why in fucks name did you not subscribe for caller ID and voice mail for at least a few months?

I win here, I win there...

Let me try to understand you have an iPhone, and you don't have your voicemail set up? or the "recruiter" didn't leave a voicemail? This is makes no sense.

You fail.

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

He has the phone from A night at the Roxbury

alright, thanks for the help guys...

anyway, I live in canada and both voice mail and caller ID is extra. It costs an extra 15 bucks a month to add both of these to your phone. Since my friends usually text me I didn't think it was the worst decision in the world.
clearly I was wrong, but theres not much I can do about that now.

is there any way to salvage this?
