My Answer to "What Do Top Technical Recruiters Make?" on Quora

http://www.quora.com/What-does-a-top-technical-recruiter-make/answer/Nicholas-Meyler-1This is a really interesting question, partly because of the presumption that "it doesn't require a lot of skill to do the job"...  which is really, really wrong and very far off the mark. I know, because I was an engineer before I was a recruiter, and I'm the fifth generation of engineers in my family --…See More

Why Should I Use a 'Spammer' Like You as a Recruiter?

                                                  I sometimes receive email from people who appear to have mental illness, asking the question: “Why would I use a spammer like you as a recruiter?”  Although this is clearly a loaded question, based on the false presumption of email contact by recruiters being ‘spam’, it does deserve an answer and provokes thought.Firstly, you can call anything you want whatever you want to, up to a point.  Shakespeare wrote “A rose by any other name would smell…See More

Death to Trolls!

Ellen Pao says it like it is.  Everyone should know the difference between legitimate criticism and cyberstalking/trolling/harassment.  It's not a subtle difference.  New Zealand has now made it a punishable felony to publish any kind of harassment, in any form, online... any kind of intentionally and knowingly false statement intended to inflict pain on the recipient or subject.I think this is a great idea.  Here is what Ellen Pao has to say:…See More

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

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