"Sad, very sad.. like all the other posts here, a man to inspire and yes I do think many professional recruiters might have walked straight past him. Thank god entrepreneurs can just get on and do!"

Mary Hope commented on Ben's blog post 'Why UK recruiters shouldn’t put all their eggs in the social media basket quite yet'
"Interesting debate. I find lots of career coach people - including me- plugging sites like Linked In 'it's not the only game in town but it is really important' So why is that? I work with senior people and it has a large following…"

10 things to do with your body in an important meeting(interview, first date, flat  mate interview,  meeting the future in-laws for the first time or whenever)1.       Shake hands after the interviewer has offered theirs to you. This implies deference2.       Smile while you shake and make eye contact3.       Sit up straight, with your back against the seat (unless this means your feet dangle).
