on and I can't imagine how or where this would be acceptable, except in a doctors office or something like that. 'Strategic business partner managers are looking for'? Really? I would like to think we bring value to them in many ways, including locking the candidate down again as we are scheduling the interview. We like to be personally involved in every step of the way, and I know our clients appreciate that from us.…
th the doctor nor does a dentist take X-rays until after you have gone into their office. I don't know about anybody else but if I called a doctor or dentist and was told I needed to go to the lab for tests or X-rays before I was able to see either I would find another doc or dentist. If a doc, dentist, banker, architect, interior decorator called me soliciting me as a client then wanted my X-rays, test results, wanted to see my house or wanted the info about my property before I had decided for sure that I wanted to work with them they wouldn't get that information.
Let's not forget here, who contacted whom and how. If that banker sent you an email saying they wanted to possibly make you a loan, you emailed back that you were interested in speaking with them. They left you a voice mail trying to reach you and in the same message asked for information to do a credit check before you spoke to them. If a dentist or doctor emailed you soliciting you as a patient, you emailed back, they left you a message to go to the lab. In all of those situations a professional does not ask for personal information prior to at a minimum a phone call.
Keep in mind people, we work with hundreds of resumes. Each person only has one resume ( with a few notable exceptions). A resume to us is one of a hundred we may look at in a day, to each person it is their life story so they might be more than hesitant to put it in the hands of anyone they have not at least spoken with on the phone.
The act of sending a resume gives us de facto permission to represent, submit and act as agent for that person.
Let's be clear. There is nothing wrong with asking for a resume but asking for a resume from someone you are trying to recruit before they have a chance to speak with you is making the assumption that they want you to represent them,are interested in moving forward with your client and are in fact a fit for the job. Hubris in it's finest form or inexperience at worst. The objective in successful recruiting is to not risk making assumptions that get your nose slapped by either a candidate or a client.
The outcome of this example might have been totally different if mr. Jack Mehoff had taken the opportunity to speak on the phone for 10 minutes with a candidate he was trying to recruit who was expressing interest, give her full information about himself and the job before he asked her to give him permission to represent her. The outcome was, she thinks he is a jack wagon, he lost a potentially good candidate and she will talk about it. Timing and keeping in mind that a resume is a person's life story as well as permission to represent and not a word doc. Is in fact part of the candidate experience that we beat our gums about all the time.
Unless of course you are copying linkedin profiles and sending them to clients without speaking with the person. If you think there are not idiots doing that, you will run across it.
Recruiting is a different ball game from asking a person who reaches out to a recruiter to send you a resume.…
d at all in learning about the "process" of job seeking. Sure there are neat gadgets and stuff to make it seem a bit friendlier and easier. But when it's all said and done a person looking for a job wants just that - a job. Why do so many of us want to think anyone outside our little world actually gives a hooey about how we do what we do?
I use professional services in many apects of both professional and personal life. Accountants, doctors, lawyers, carpenters - you name it. I'm "interested" in what they do - right up to the point of them doing it FOR me and then we go our separate ways.
They may seem to be interested in fishing - but only until they land a fish.…
If we see you wearing Prada trainers & carrying a Gucci bag we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a pay rise
If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes and therefore you do not need a pay rise
If you dress in-between, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a pay rise.
We will no longer accept a doctor statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.
