    I would send an email and try calling once every 2-3 days at most. Calling once every day still makes you appear stalkerish, IMO. You don't want to annoy the recruiter and blow your opportunity.

    I just went through this with the entire HR department after I had applied for a job. Every time I called, it went to voicemail. I actually called multiple times a day and just never left a message because I knew if I didn't get them on the phone then, they'd probably call back when I was unable to answer the phone. I don't know if they knew how many times I really called (it was a lot) but after I finally got ahold of them to schedule and then reschedule an interview, I went for it and a couple weeks later got a job offer. Every time I did go ahead and leave a message, I thought they were blowing me off, but when the recruiter emailed me benefit information a few days after I left a message asking her about it, she even apologized in the email for taking so long to get back to me, so it's not always a blow off. Good luck!

    Thanks Joanna73! I sent her an email today(I didn't want to last week since I had already left her two voice mails) and within a minute,(I kid you not!) she emailed me back stating:

    "I have received your voicemails and was going to call this afternoon to set up a time for a phone interview. Would you be available to speak tomorrow, October 23, 2012 at either 1pm or 2pm?"

    YES! FINALLY GOT A HOLD OF HER! I suppose she prefers email??? I mean I guess its less disruptive and since there's a time difference between us (Pacific Standard Time vs. Eastern Standard Time), I'm sure she didn't want to waste her time calling me again. You're right lockheart678, its not always a blow off!

    Thanks everyone for helping me! I probably would have lost this opportunity without you and your great input!!
