"Alas the demands of a young baby have dictated the need to let the hair style go once and for all. My trademark "Morrissey Quiff" now a all over no.1 and boy do I look 10 years older overnight."

Russ Recruits commented on Gabriel Bachove's blog post 'Do you still pay a recruiter their commission if they leave the company?'
"There are huge differences between europe and the states on this - over here you would have no choice but to pay.  You can also make a staff member sign a clause not to re-enter the market if they left your employment - you just dont…"

"No worries at all - good read and worth watching when this is out UK - we get HBO a week or so down the line from the states. Looks like bread n butter Mike Moore - which cant be a bad thing."

You've been Headhunted ! - Er, No you havent...

You see you have mail. Its from an Internal Recruiter for a big brand name.We want you....! Me? Seriously?This is not the story of how I fell for it - its more that I found myself part of a mass mail out, based on no more than "keyword" searching, from the kind of organisation which should have the resources, the profile, the calibre of recruiters to do so much better, whilst making out to be the bastion of headhunting.  I get the occasional tap on the shoulder - I'm sure we all do.

"I think the only people over here working this week are recruiters trying to get hold of desision makers, who in turn are all skiving early to make use of the weather and Jubilee weekend!    "

"It would have been quicker to have read Tolkiens complete works. I know us brits bang on, 1966, ww2, the empire etc etc -  but that could have been a good weekly blog, in "BBC Bitesize" chunks. Its a brit view, so a few elements…"
