Lessons Learned: Ethics

At least three people that I have placed in the past decade (still at their jobs, at the same companies) have made over $500,000 this year. This feels good to know -- some people benefited from my work...What's really interesting is that all three of those people actually asked me to help them find other jobs, because they weren't that happy at the companies after a year or two.  I was very attentive to their concerns, but remained hands-off as much as possible, given the ethical requirements…See More

When I perform a search correctly, my work results in millions of dollars of value to my client, sometimes even billions. I think recruiters are way underpaid for what they provide as a service, and I would say there are very few lawyers out there that have my skills or…

Who REALLY Sucks? Scientific Study

Posted on August 26, 2014 at 2:30am 3 Comments

This is a fairly frivolous research project, but I have heard so many people complaining in the past year about how 'recruiters suck', that I was motivated to go do some research, using the Google Chrome Search Engine to obtain data about what, or who, or which professions, vegetables, computer languages,…

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

It's time to take an aggressive position against this prevalent and disappointing trend of demeaning recruiters.  It's almost become a fad for recruiters to write blogs about how recruiters suck, so that they can distinguish themselves against the others... their main 'selling point' being that they 'suck…
