"Thanks for the laugh. The last year I have spent more time on the phone and meeting candidates live than at any point in my career, consequently I had the best year of my now seven year career.  I am all for incremental improvement at the…"

"Edit: "Moreover I do agree with all her comments", should say "moreover I do not agree with all her comments..." Past five oclock I seem to be terrible at multitasking."

"@ Derdiver, I totally get it.  She took the time to slam agency side, and admittedly backtracked a little, so I just wanted to make a nice little defense.  Moreover I do agree with all her comments, nor do I agree with all of Greg's…"

""Another agency enemy" Not even close.  If you read over your first comment you slammed agency recruiters (just read it again, you did multiple times) and you did that based on your limited experience. I simply pointed out how…"

"@ Jackie. Right. So you spent your entire first comment slamming agency recruiters, but then close your final comment with the line below. "Bottom line is we are all trying to make a living here and recruiting is our commonality so really…"

"Ugh. That was going to be the extent of my reply. Not to your column but to the broader issue of Recruiters being replaced by some technology.  From a wider perspective it seems like every time a new technology comes out, take your pick; job…"

Love the "no."

Love the “No.”As recruiters we are trained to love hearing yes.  “Yes, please help me with this position.”  “Yes we are going to make your candidate an offer.”  And best of all, “yes I will accept that offer and here are seven of my highly qualified friends that need work.”  I may have exaggerated with the last one.  But you get my point. The word “No” is something we are trained to hate and in fact overcome! …See More

David Wells replied to Will Thomson's discussion 'Really, Really Bad Recruiters!'
"That is amazing. I am of course bothered by the asking for references in the secondary email but I am even bothered by the original call. I think it's a personal pet peeve but I just cannot stand it when someone who has never ever spoken to me…"
