"These are all very basic questions that should all be asked of every candidate. But, I have seen newer recruiters shy away from them, afraid to hear any 'bad news'. It takes them awhile before they get that asking the questions can save a…"

"Jerry- the first two you mentioned about interviewing with someone else and accepting a counteroffer are essential. You will get burned if you haven't already if you don't ask those questions. Good points."

"Good list.  I might add that most of these questions should not only be asked at initial screening;  but also after each event.  Because, things change.  And it doesn't suffice  to say "any changes since we last…"

I wouldn’t hire you as my recruiter…and neither would you!

Posted on December 21, 2011 at 10:39am 0 Comments

Have you ever gotten the call from a friend because you are a recruiter and they need a job? As the conversation unfolds and you hear the woes of the market, the reason the current job has wronged them, and all the other reasons the work world is not kind to them.
