"Thanks for the generous comment, Ken. In answer to your question, it's to encourage more recruiters to use copywriters. PS...I used to write job ads.  These days I use copywriters. "

I Used To Write Job Ads

Back in the day, just before and during the early days of the Internet, I used to write job copy. I generated about 90% of my fees by selling this to my clients.I’d produce a great display ad - probably not always as great as what the client would get from a decent creative ad agency, but miles better than anything…See More

Here’s another recruitment myth that needs to be punched in the face

It’s kind of funny that recruiters are often considered to be “too salesy”.I suspect what people mean when they describe agency recruiters this way is that they act like salespeople. That they display all of the hackneyed stereotypes that are associated with salespeople – or more accurately, bad salespeople.Great salespeople don’t display these characteristics, because of the very fact that they are great salespeople. The chances are they’re…See More
