"Great blog with good reminders for new and experienced recruiters. There are times however when you do need to "push for certain information" when it comes to hiring. For example: If a small start-up company has a drug with a narrow…"

Questions to Ask Prospective Employees

The interview process is not fun for those looking to hire people, but it really isn't that bad of an experience, if you know the simple questions to use in an interview:- Why Do You Want to Work here? What is it that makes you desire this job? Why did you apply for it? These are great things to ask to guage the enthusiasm of potential employees in regards to the job you're looking to hire them for.- Do You Have the right Experience? It's usually a bad idea to hire someone who has little to no…See More

"Thanks for the blog, and I agree with you EXCEPT for the bottom-feeder tag and #2. It's very hard to build rapport and relationship via email. It's impossible to effectively discuss a candidate or conduct a proper debrief via email. As…"

David King commented on Donald Sonn's blog post 'Rules for Headhunters'
"This was an interesting quick read...though I absolute MUST agree with Ragan. Referring to any client as a "bottom-feeder" is less than professional, and to think of them that way is risky: such a lack of regard for the client is likely to…"

Rules for Headhunters

Posted on October 20, 2010 at 3:02pm 14 Comments

Here are the rules we live by when working to bring new employees to HR Directors and other hiring authorities:

1. Don’t waste their time. You don’t have nearly enough to start with. Do everything you can to avoid wasting their time.

2. Use email as much as possible instead of the telephone. Recruiters must use the telephone in order to "sell" but remember that the customer comes first.
