"I have you beat but I'm not happy about.    I had an offer pending to Bruce Pardo in 2008 before he went on his massacre dressed as Santa...he killed 9 people and then himself.  It was a classified project dealing with radar…"

Keith Plesha commented on Cora Mae Lengeman's blog post 'Am I Too Ethical To Be A Recruiter?'
"That was a long story for what the point ended up being.  It sounds far more shady on the part of the candidate...ignoring calls to end up interviewing with the same group you had been calling about on his own.  How did the candidate find…"

Keith Plesha commented on Kirby Cole's blog post 'Calling All Recruiters - Humaneness For the Under and Unemployed'
"I have no issue with the people that actively take part in trying to better themselves or simply network to get hired.    The issue I have is with those job seekers that do nothing!  The ones that feel sorry for themselves because no…"

"I think technical people who have to describe not only what they did but the various tools they used might need three pages. I think you should print your resume out and bring it with you to the interview in case the interviewer misplaces the…"

Keith Plesha commented on Timothy Yandel's blog post 'Extending Job Offers Too Late'
"@Gina: Well there are several issues here.  The first is obvious, why would you think that the delay of hiring has anything to do with the recruiter?  The recruiter is not picking his/her boss in this scenario...clearly the decision is…"

Keith Plesha commented on Julie Link's blog post 'Job Seekers: Stop Working So Hard!'
"My point was not to emphasize my allegiance...it was to point out that you can't work with or help everyone.  Putting screening questions in place for posted positions is the easiest way to keep unqualified candidates from taking up more…"

Keith Plesha commented on Timothy Yandel's blog post 'Extending Job Offers Too Late'
"Instill that sense of urgency immediately with the client or they will constantly miss out on potentially great folks.  This is even more pertinent with tech contracts.  I struggle with this with my own internal hiring managers dragging…"

Keith Plesha commented on Julie Link's blog post 'Job Seekers: Stop Working So Hard!'
"@Julie: You aren't grasping the use of the screener questions.  The point is to rule the candidate out for a specific job and not from your database entirely (though there will be those that you wish to eliminate entirely...like the one…"

Keith Plesha commented on Julie Link's blog post 'Job Seekers: Stop Working So Hard!'
"A good majority of these issues can be solved by having an ATS in place.  We use Taleo and I could care less how many jobs someone submits their resume too because I have setup questions they must be answered for each position plus…"

Valentino Martinez replied to Keith Plesha's discussion 'Great article on outdated career advice'
"There is no such thing as outdated career advice--just narrow-minded people in temporary positions of authority, who in turn, will eventually also be judged by narrow-minded people in temporary positions of authority...and so it goes.   "

"If i see one more one page functional resume with a gobblegoop summary of what somebody has done in the course of five jobs with a laundry list of companies and dates at the bottom i am going to scream.       "
