An internal recruiter received my resume indirectly through a relative. This recruiter emailed me beginning of November who asked if I wanted to speak about a position that I'm interested in. I respond promptly and then never hear back. I emailed him a second time, and even left a message on his voice mail. Absolutely nothing.

I spoke with my relative who kind of gave me a non-answer as to why I never got a response. She is taking personal time off so its inappropriate for me to ask her to inquire about it.

I've gotten some strange responses on what to do. One person said to do nothing and that it would be rude to contact him again. Another person suggested calling their general office line to see how I can talk to him. Another said to literally go into the building to speak. I'm thinking maybe try and message his LinkedIn.

What do you think?

Given the fact you've contacted this recruiter numerous times w/o success, I think it's safe to assume they've decided to not fill the position or chosen another person for the job. I would move on.
