"We faced this situation and the candidate did declare he interviewed with our client 3 years earlier. He is part of their user group meetings, from time to time, but they just never thought of asking him to interview for a job, as he owned his own…"

"Jimmy,  I have worked in environments where the sales and recruiting desks were separated, but not to the point of zero overlap. The best sales people I worked with were also good recruiters (maybe not the best sourcers, but they knew their…"

Ambrish Kochikar commented on Valentino Martinez's blog post 'THE ARROGANCE FACTOR IN RECRUITMENT'
"That's a tough one to answer for everyone, but IMHO the 'better' recruiter has discovered the way to the top is to treat every candidate professionally, even those who behave unprofessionally with you (the recruiter)."

Which question(s) do you think other recruiters should ask more often?

Posted on April 18, 2011 at 11:33pm 0 Comments

Early on in my career as a recruiter, after the initial call with any candidate, I'd always wonder whether I had learned enough and asked the right questions. I still don't like to think that I know everything.  I'd like to hear what questions recruiters here think other recruiters should be asking more often or even at all.


I haven't been visiting RB as regularly as I'd like to, so if this has been asked and answered before, feel free to move on. :)
