Duplication of Effort

Posted on October 22, 2009 at 3:38pm 1 Comment

Dearest candidate,

I appreciate the opportunity to interview you and compare your skill set to the other candidates currently in consideration for our open technical management position.

Should you wish to apply for the… Continue

Dearest candidate,

Thank you for the opportunity to interview you this morning for the Director position with my client. I appreciate your having explained to me the number of senior level executives with whom you golf on a regular basis and who are so fond of you. In addition, I apologize for not knowing who you were in advance and remain grateful for your sharing with me how much money you made five years ago.

The hiring manager has requested to only review candidates… Continue

Why do recruiters not use position specs more frequently?
