"@ Paul:  No matter how carefully I craft a message, review it with my colleagues, and keep it brief- I've not been able to get above a 20% response rate for large numbers of mails sent... I believe it to be for the reasons I gave- most…"

"Paul, you have a point.  If someone is sexually harassed on the job, the logical thing to do is to report the incident to get the perpetrator fired!  And that is exactly what the CEO did-she reported (leaked) it on the Internet to…"

"Ken  ... LinkedIn Recruiter InMail only has a low response rate if the folks using it don't know how to properly craft a message that will get a positive response from a potential candidate ... Also,  Startup CEOs with a reputation…"

Steven Guine commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How the Average Recruiters think when they are Recruiting You'
"Ken, many of the top tier talent who read or heard about the leaked email automatically scratched that company off their list (if they ever heard of the firm to begin with) as well as the CEO. The damage she did to her firm would be cause for any…"

How the Average Recruiters think when they are Recruiting You

So, I was surfing the Internet when a title of an article caught my attention.  And I just couldn't resist clicking through the link to read what it was all about.  The title of the article was: Female CEO Shares…See More

Keith D. Halperin commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How the Average Recruiters think when they are Recruiting You'
"Thanks, Ken. I think most of f the low response for LI is that you have to OPT-OUT to say you aren't interested in job opportunities, and that's why most people who look like they're open to them really AREN'T. (Imagine if you…"

"Great article!  When I read her story, I was a little shocked and surprised that it went viral.  I mean, seriously, haven't we all had some ridiculous responses before?  "WHY would she make it public?" was what I was…"

PAUL FOREL commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'The LinkedIn Way-The Game Headhunters Are Losing'
""Here’s an idea! Instead of pitching them a job similar to the one they presently have, why not make it your mission to find out what they are looking for in their next job. This might take a while, but you will now have a legitimate…"

PAUL FOREL commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'It's The Headhunter Fee, Stupid!'
"Ken, I read this post three times and hardly any of what you wrote addressed the 'headhunter fee' as you call it. And by the way, Ken, it is more properly referred to as a 'Recruitment Fee', not a 'headhunter fee'. You…"

PAUL FOREL commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How Obama Will Fix the Economy And Re-Invent Recruiting'
"Ken, Hello.... I tend to believe your 'concern' that LI, Monster, et al are negatively impacting the recruitment business is contingent on whether one is in the Employment Agency business or that of Executive Search. In the case of the…"

PAUL FOREL commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'It’s Time to Take Another Look at Headhunters'
"Ken, Good Morning... FWIW, 'Headhunters' are both contingency and retained search agents. There is no longer a distinction between the two when referring to 'Headhunters'. The 'qualifier' is whether such a person is…"

Ken Forrester commented on Amy Ala's blog post 'A Numbers Game: A Corporate Recruiter's Take on the State of Staffing'
