After many years in corporate recruitment I've learned a few things. At least I think I have. Read the following ten things I've learned and see if they resonate with you. Please add some things you've learned as a comment.
- Hiring managers often complain about not receiving enough good resumes from you but they often either don't review or don't respond to the resumes you send them.
- Candidates apply to jobs that they have no business applying to. I'm a plumber so I'll…

Whether or not you need to 'hire' a man of such… Continue

As a rookie recruiter many years ago, I was told a by an old hand in recruitment, while we were sharing a convivial drink, that ‘recruitment is simple but that doesn't mean it's easy'. Over the years I have had reason to reflect on the truth of that statement many times and it's hard to fault it.
