I had a similar experience. Except, it wasn't an alum, but was an analyst that I was introduced to. We schedule an appointment and he doesn't call, so we reschedule and the same thing happens again. However, he stops responding after that, its been a few months now and I have send ~8 emails following up, but no response.

It does get frustrating, very frustrating! I understand what comes with the analyst job and you cant always make time, but to completely stop responding! I don't think its your resume because if he doesn't like your resume he can still take the call and just say he will forward it to HR or not even say anything.

I think you will just have to let it go and move on, imo. What do the rest of the monkeys think?

Unless he's a massive dick, I seriously doubt he'd just cancel on you because of your resume without saying. He's probably just really busy and has more important things to do and didn't get the chance to cancel - it happens. You'd be surprised - I've had people I've sent emails to respond weeks later. It's just a numbers game you gotta just keep grinding and networking.
