My last interview with this company was almost four weeks ago. Two weeks after this last interview, the recruiter called and left me a message stating that she had 1-2 more phone interviews to do and then she'd be in touch to schedule an office interview. I called her back, but her voicemail said she'd be out of the office until Monday of this week. I returned her call over a week ago and I still haven't heard from her. What could be going on? Should I email her?

Nope, I would write it off and keep looking. No need to further set yourself up for more heartache.

If they were interested in you, they'd contact you.

You already returned the call with no response. There's no reason in hell the recruiter didn't get your message.

That's not to say you wouldn't get any callback in the future, sometime these things take time. But mentally let it go.

No. Don't concern yourself with details about why she hasn't followed up.

My personal rule is I follow up once, and that's ONLY if it was a position I really was excited about.

In your case, take the recruiters lack of response for what it is and count it a done deal. Besides, to leave you hanging for 2+ weeks is tacky on their part. You probably dodged a bullet by not going to work for them anyway.

Do you want the job?

If you want it, follow up again. If you don't want it, move on.

Just because they have not responded does not mean they don't want you or are not interested. Many things could have caused a lack of response. It won't hurt to send a brief email letting them know your still interested. It's nice for people to say forget about it as they are not interested but, they have no idea why there was no response. So, if this job is one you want (or even just plain old need) a followup is not going to hurt.
