Patricia Morrison commented on KKenner's blog post 'When the Candidate asks..."Why didn't you call me?'
"I respond with a quick e mail if the candidate is qualified and I am not interested.  If they do not meet the necessary requirements which are clearly stated in the job ad, then I do not feel obligated to get back to them.  Time is of the…"

"Great article!  You hit all the key points in educating clients as to why to use a head hunter.  If none of these points hit home for my potential client then I will know that this may not be the client for me either. Thanks for your…"

"Great post!  Thanks for sharing.  I agree.  Keep it simple and on the table.  Weed out the wrong candidates fast, and move on. No judgement; it just is what it is.   I will use some of you statements."

Patricia Morrison commented on Mitch Sullivan's blog post 'The Secret To Cold-Calling'
"And that is why it's one out of four or one out of six filled.  Promises need to be kept from both sides; recruiter and client.  Usually a good relationship is formed after a job is filled.  Or after I've proven my value by…"

Rickie Long replied to Patricia Morrison's discussion 'Better performance from candidate who are hired through a search firm?'
"I believe a good recruiter is better at screening candidates matching/eliminating as appropriate.  So I would expect a referred candidate to perform better.  They were better screened. "

Patricia Morrison commented on Jason Alba's blog post 'What are the top 5 things job seekers do that annoy you?'
"#1 absolute annoyance:  Blowing the first interview by not being at their best.  Not doing due diligence about the company, not being focused, talking way too much, talking way too much about how they were done wrong by their last…"

Patricia Morrison commented on Theresa Hunter's blog post 'How do you get past the I don't know anyone looking response when networking with candidates?'
"Bottom line is that some people will refer sometimes and others won't refer ever. In my experience, few people are born networkers and even though they don't know you, will have suggestions of who you could call.…"
