I'm not a qualified career coach, counsellor or even a trained psychometric testing assessor. These contacts of mine have sought my help because I know their sectors and have been a senior level recruiter for some years.…See More

Posted on February 29, 2012 at 12:21pm 13 Comments

Had a recent coffee with a mate and in turn we despaired, chuckled and grimaced when recalling recruiters we knew, worked with or had met over the years. So as a bit of a fun posting here's my guide to spotting if you're a Recruiment Bore.

  1. Make sure your Linkedin profile is 100% complete. There are loads of websites you can google offering great advice on making your profile as strong as possible so I won't regurgitate too much…
