Should I Try the Hiring Manager One More Time?

Dear Experts, Before I ask my question, I just wanted to say thank you for all the advice you have provided for all the job seekers out there, including myself. Personally, it has helped me grow leaps and bounds over the past few months. About 3 weeks ago, I applied for a position with a local sports team that seemed like a great fit for my abilities and vice versa. First time, I sent my application materials and waited a week for a call back; after waiting, I decided to place a call to the hiring manager. He said he never received it and suggested I send it again. I re-sent it and waited another week. After no word on the process, I called again and spoke to the same gentleman. After a short conversation, he said they are reviewing resumes and suggested I contact him in another week to see if I made it to the interview pile. So, I did as I was asked and waited. Another week goes by and upon calling once more, he said they are still reviewing resumes but remembered me due to my ability to follow up. Three days later, I saw the job posted again. Should I place one more call or move on? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#401 Time to move on. This guy wanted to give you a subtle hint without completely shooting you down. (@gradversity) Q#401 YES! Call & ask directly to set up 30 min mtg. to learn how the right candidate will make his job easier! (@jtodonnell) Q#401 Seems you and the job aren't as much of a right fit as you thought or they'd have called you. Next! (@juliaerickson) Q#401 I'd say 'move on' - focus on new opportunities and proving ur value/credibility to a new audience. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#401 My vote; move on. But, if you are not ready 2 let go of it yet, better 2 spend yr time networking 4 lead on inside. (@lauralabovich) Q#401 You've already followed-up 3 times; job has been reposted. Another follow-up seems like waste. (@teenarose) Q#401 Hmmm... Sounds like they are still looking. I'd move on. He had a LOT of opps to grab you.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully. After spending many years in corporate HR, I flipped to the other side and became a career therapist. So, I've seen both sides of this situation in the workplace. In this video, I discuss why people struggle to deal with bullies and what you can do to change the situation instantly.

This week, I did something that truly scared me. I sent an email to over 120,000 Work It Daily newsletter subscribers and asked them to answer the question, "What do we do?"
