Clients Asking for References

Started Jun 2 0 Replies

I am curious what other established recruiters think about being asked for references by prospective customers.  It's a bit rare for me, since I've been in the business so long and have usually been…Continue

Article on Headhunting in "The Economist" article discusses new trends in retained search and is much more accurate and insightful than some of the very sloppily written stuff that appeared in Fordyce Letter, for example, which completely missed the point.See More

"60% commission is pretty common... which would put you in the $300K range in earnings.  Why not take all the business and work from home, if you can continue the practise?  Or, talk to other firms about bringing the biz to them.  60%…"

This is a clever product/service which allows me to rate websites based on their reliability and truthfulness.  If you feel a website is a fraud, you can (using the Chrome add-ons) write a review of why you are dissatisfied.  With so little actual policing of content and accuracy on the Internet, it is a useful tool to report blatant lying by website owners, etc., when not much else can be done about it.If you find someone lying about you, you can also write a review.…See More

Goats in Agoura

I love to live here in Agoura, with the beautiful sharp volcanic hills, the wilderness around me, the nearby freeway artery connecting me to spots far away, the coyotes, deer, foxes, hawks, herons, egrets, raccoons and even the rare bear or mountain-lion.This news story about the fast-paced lifestyle in my hypermodern community amused me, especially as a recruiter, since I fancy that perhaps one day my skills in recruiting will enable me to enjoy an even finer career as a goatherd or…See More

Just For Fun: How To Respond to Scam IRS Tax Fraud Calls

Posted on April 10, 2015 at 11:37pm 0 Comments

I've gotten three calls in the past two days from people with very thick Indian accents claiming that I have been indicted for tax fraud and that it is a "non-bailable charge" which will result in me being jailed if I do not pay quickly. This is a prevalent scam these days, which the IRS has warned the public about.

Apart from the fact that I my Dad works with the IRS, (he has a special license to practice tax accounting defense in front of the IRS that most accountants don't have), I…
