"Too many red flags in the initial email to engage a person like this on any level higher than a "thanks but no thanks" reply. The deceptive subject line merits a one way trip to the "junk" folder. If my recruiters worked biz dev…"

Hiring Companies: Don't get your ass kicked

Posted on April 26, 2012 at 11:07am 1 Comment

(This is an entry I originally contributed to our company's site, where the target audience is different from this community.)

It’s common today for senior leadership at companies to dispatch junior team members to interview candidates who, if they successfully make it through the process, would become that interviewer’s boss.

Jesus Christ, I’m on the clock here again.  It’s a good thing my wife made me quit smoking.  I’d need a carton to keep these nerves at bay. Now, instead I compulsively refresh my stock portfolio. It’s down 40%.  In four seconds it’ll be back up.

 

Just checked. It’s down 45%. Shit, that doesn’t help.

 

Well, at least I’ve still got Bourbon. As long as I’m in this business I’ll never give that up. It’s noon somewhere for chrissake.

 

It’s D-day on a…

Like any professionals, Executive Recruiters “talk shop”.  Folks like to get together and chat about their wins and losses. And because there’s a significant sales component to this role, we’re judged more by our wins than our losses.  As such, when talkin’ shop, it’s sometimes hard to discern what information being…
