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…"

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'
"Great insights into those numbers Amy, I really like your perspective.  One question that I would have like to see was how recruiters are affected by the skill-gap problem.  In 24 years of recruiting I have never presented anyone without a…"

Keith D. Halperin commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How Obama Will Fix the Economy And Re-Invent Recruiting'
"Thanks, Amy.  There AREN’T desperate employers with money, or we'd see all sorts of money related-enticements as we did during Dot.com Boom. Instead, we see a bunch of whiny, entitled Founders, CXOs, Sr. Execs, and Hiring Managers…"

Ken Forrester commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How Obama Will Fix the Economy And Re-Invent Recruiting'
"Whenever anyone tells me that something cannot be done, I say it is because they are limited to their own knowledge.  I have a headhunter friend who once generated over $900K in placements in one year.   If that sounds hard to believe…"

Amy Ala commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'How Obama Will Fix the Economy And Re-Invent Recruiting'
