    Default Application not successful

    Applied for a contract that I thought was a pretty good match. Was expecting a phone call from the agent, however I got a message from them today "unfortunately you have not been successful this time."

    What are the chances of getting some feedback from the agent? Zilch?

    Probably. Depends a lot on your relationship with the agent and the agent themselves. If you’ve been in regular contact with them about the role they may be able to provide additional feedback. Or they might just drop you like hot snot if the candidate that got placed was also one of theirs.

    At least he told you,you didn't get the gig. At least half of the time you will never ever hear anything back from the agent at all.

    Assume none and you won't be disappointed. Agents are in the game to make money and giving feedback means they've got to ask he client and then relay it on to every contractor that failed to get a gig. That's a lot of time spent not making money.

    As already stated you've got a lot more than usual. Just move on.
