Suzanne Levison replied to Paul Dhanjal's discussion 'Is Headhunting ethical?'
"You must have been in the midst of an "ethical" crisis about recruiting. For each person, one has to find what feels right to get past the gatekeeper. I don't like to lie, but I also don't think I need to divulge my reasons. What…"

Barbara Goldman replied to Paul Dhanjal's discussion 'Is Headhunting ethical?'
"It's not ethical if you are headhunting slaves, or stealing private property.  A headhunter is like an agent. Since employees are not owned, nor enslaved, they are free game. Nobody leaves a job they like. Questioning ethics in this…"

"The fact is, you do not have to be dishonest to successfully recruit. It's just the path of least resistance for many, though for my money the truth is easier to remember."

"As an Executive recruiter I offer an opportunity and nothing more. The decision is theirs! I will never twist, manipulate, or force someone to take my job. Over 15 years I have had more thanks than anything!"

"Fortunately, today, we've societally "evolved" to self-indulgent morally relative situational ethics, so no longer need to ask that question regarding gatekeepers, unlike 32 years ago when I became a 3rd party recruiter.As a 10…"

Stephanie McDonald replied to Paul Dhanjal's discussion 'Is Headhunting ethical?'
"I haven't had to tell a lie to get past gatekeepers. And I'm not religious so it's a non issue. BTW, I was corporate HR for 13 years and raided all the time! Don't fool yourself thinking we aren't adding that value. Not…"

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to

Thank you for your time.
