I've been a Corporate Recruiter for many years, I know how to recruit and source. I'm seeking a new assignment right now and no this is not a plea for an interview.
Where are the REAL recruiters??? I receive at least 3-4 calls/emails from "recruiters", don't get me wrong I more than understand that they need to fill a job but LOOK at my resume. I am not an IT Director, Taleo IT Analyst or an Accountant!
I had one person call me and I had to explain to him , that I wasn't a match for his open position. He argued with me that it was...until I read it with him and he got it!!
I am seeking a virtual position. I can't tell you how many times a day I have to explain to the recruiter what that means and then recruiter insists I live close to the job
If I did any of these things, I would have been let go on the spot. I would have fired myself!! lol
There are new recruiters out there with no exp or idea of what they are doing. Lots of start-up recruiting agencies, looking to make a quick buck...commission only but only after 2 weeks they will see how you do and just maybe you can get paid..
I know I shouldn't complain at least someone is calling but what about the clients?? These types of "recruiters" don't establish a relationship with the client sometimes they don't even know who they are!
Is it just me?
