CV Interests and Interesting CVs

 In the course of my daily work in Executive Search, I don’t do much job board mining and I don’t tend to see a huge volume of CVs. Most of those CVs I do see tend to be those of Senior Execs, and a lot of them don’t put their interests on their CVs.

"It's not your call who the company decides to hire.  You do not know their business, they do.  Your job is simply to bring the most qualified people you can find and then back off."

"Is that our role to decide? 2 things: he who has the gold, make rules; and two: change especially cultural requires an investment which typically means a loss, in this case a short term loss of quality of skills to invest in the longer term…"

Giles Lewis and Gina Sargunar commented on Greg Savage's blog post 'Two killer questions great recruiters ask every time'
"I think a good question to ask at this early stage is 'How is the absence impacting on the business? Then you know how critical this vacancy is, and you can get an idea of how it is impacting on the team and financially also."

As we fight the uphill battle against Recruitment’s dire reputation by striving to provide the best service we can and be as ethical and incisive as possible, we do occasionally come across an instruction from the client side that never fails to shock me.
