Most people who conduct recruitment interviews have never been trained in how to interview effectively. Yet this lack of training doesn't stop these interviewers from believing that they have good interview skills and don't need any training. It's called confirmation bias eg 'I hired Gavin and he turned out…See More

Mitch Sullivan commented on Ross Clennett's blog post 'Headhunting: Unethical or a necessary part of a competitive job market?'
"I agree Nicholas. But I don't think 3rd party recruiters should proactively target employees of clients.  And by client, I mean a company that uses that particular recruiter exclusively to fill their vacancies, or retains them.  If…"

Nicholas Meyler commented on Ross Clennett's blog post 'Headhunting: Unethical or a necessary part of a competitive job market?'
"The point that Headhunting is 100% ethical in a free-market economy is important to underscore.  Candidates are free agents, not chattel owned by their employers."
