"Bravo!  I agree completely with your sentiments, to the point that we won't do business with company's that insist on using the systems.  At that point, it's about the dollars and not the quality.  If big companies…"

Join the revolution! Don’t support the Master Vendors.

It seems to me that most recruiters would agree that Master Vendors and Managed Agency Services are not the best example of how an agency service should be delivered.Master Vendors gain business based on price and price alone.  They may succeed in convincing their customers that service will not be affected, but in my experience of feedback from returning customers, this is not the case.  Managed agency services dilute customer service, and by utilising online booking systems and centralising…See More

"I remember my old boss telling me that Monster was ok and all but it was in the database that he had scanned hundreds of resumes in to. Told me Monster board would last another 6 months then fade away. "
