Zero to Hero Weekly | Issue 16 — Ghosted?

Ghosted? It happens to all of us. You get ghosted by a recruiter, or a manager, or a colleague, or even a friend. Here are a few tips and tricks to follow up when you are ghosted.

Welcome to the sixteenth issue of Zero to Hero Weekly.

In the last few weeks, I’ve done a lot and created lots of valuable content too. Let me share some of the highlights.

Big Sur Was Awesome 🏔🌊🌲

First, some personal updates. We went to a Big Sur retreat as a family. It was something that we needed badly for so long.

There was zero technology, full of nature; no Internet, no 5G, even mobile phone was useless since there was zero reception mostly.

Here’s a Twitter thread if you want to see more pictures and videos:

Cleaner, Bolder Zero To Hero Re-Alignment

I’ve replaced anything redundant and came up with a clean paper white reading experience:

New Articles 👩‍🍳

I don’t know how, but I managed to develop three valuable articles in the last two weeks.

Setting Up SPIRE on EKS in Less Than Ten Minutes talks about things like Zero Trust and Identity Federation in detail, explains how SPIRE solves these problems at scale. There is also an 18-minute lecture that shows you how you can set up SPIRE on your Kubernetes cluster.

One Does Not Simply “Terminal” 👌 provides you a list of tools and utilities for those command-line aficionados out there. I’ll add more to the list when I find new cool stuff.

Last but not least, Be the Next Version of Yourself tells you how to be… well, the next version of yourself 🙂.

I have more articles and videos down the line, so stay tuned.

Random Thought of the Week

Ghosted? It happens to all of us. You get ghosted by a recruiter, or a manager, or a colleague, or even a friend.

Whether it’s a recruiter who switched to radio silence after extending an offer or a connection on a business network that stopped responding, you probably have professionally “ghosted” before. And if not, lucky you—but you will be ghosted sooner or later 🙂.

Instances of sudden silence can shatter your confidence. You will likely feel confused and rejected. Here are a few tips and tricks to follow up when you are ghosted.
