Feargall kenny commented on Russell White's blog post 'Why Recruiters Get A Bad Rep'
"This this has largely to do with the generally poor quality of inbound candidates which itself is highly coupled with the ease of applyling (via indeed or click-to-apply with linkedin) these days. Just because you can apply doesn't mean you…"
