Ryan Leary commented on Dustin Carper's blog post 'How Not to Get Hired at Groupon: Stalk Us'
"I'm not sure that I agree period. I get the frustration, we all have that. The conversation of transparency and being real is malarkey. This is recruiting and HR. This is not saving the world. I think most have crossed the line of thinking…"

Dustin Carper commented on Nick Tubach's blog post 'Acknowledging the Elephant in the Room'
"I really like the idea of adding an extra step (i.e. writing a proposal). If someone is going to be doing that in the job, why not see if they can do it already and save everyone time? I also think that adding humor and/or slightly subversive…"

"Wow. Is this supposed to be a veiled ad for how wonderful groupon is doing? So much business, that you just can't get it done? Interesting approach, but knowing the candidate market for good people, Its hard to see you swatting top performers…"

bill martineau commented on Dustin Carper's blog post 'How Not to Get Hired at Groupon: Stalk Us'
"My initial take (like several others) is oh to be the prom queen with the dazzling looks! Some day your beauty will fade and you will long for the attention again. On my second pass though it came off simply as the all too typical response from HR…"

"Thanks Dustin, great first post!  I feel your pain... in fact did a FB video chat along the same lines but tried to educate the candidates on how to network "effectively" with recruiters. "

Sandra McCartt commented on Dustin Carper's blog post 'How Not to Get Hired at Groupon: Stalk Us'
