"Thanks, Daniel. The relationships with the less than stellar recruiters don't last long at all. One of my customers told me that during a telephone interview, the recruiter came flat out and asked how old she was. Really? "

Dear recruiter, 15 reasons why you lost the best candidate ever

As a career strategist I’m privy to conversation from job candidates who are at the mercy of internal and third-party recruiters. I say mercy because before they can sell themselves to the hiring manager, they have to get past the recruiter.In the grand scheme of things there seems to be a misunderstanding of the importance…See More

On the mind of a recruiter

It's Casino Night for my kids' school. I don't expect much from this event, but it turns out to be more fun than I would have thought. It's surprising how PTA volunteers can really let loose when alcohol is consumed at great quantities. I talk with two stupid-drunk people at length, and another person with whom I have an interesting conversation.The interesting conversation of which I…See More
