Recruiters: Have you ever been fired by a candidate even though they have accepted the position you worked hard to obtain for them? It happened to me today!

Hi again,
Just looking at your profile icon on my contacts and noticed a small typo in your corporate name. I have been busy doing book reviews for a publishing company in the US so my proof reading skills have been sharpened when reviewing others work...of course I always have tons of typos in my own work...Murphy's Law!!
Cheers,
Sue

Hi Stuart,

Glad to connect with you. Have to admit that I haven't had a great deal of time to work with this site as most of my networking takes place within my LinkedIn connections but interested to see if you find this site to be an asset in the recruitment arena.

Sincerely,
Sue
