Wow!! Act like a real human being and treat potential candidates as real human beings!! Any recruiter who is not doing this should not be in the industry period!!
The fact that articles about this very subject continue to get written tells me that there is something very very wrong with the recruitment industry and it is no wonder recruiters continue to get a bad rap….BECAUSE ITS DESERVED!!
All I can say is that while there are A TON of HACKS out there calling themselves recruiters, there are in fact quite a few of us who are in this business and do things the right way.
Don’t lump all recruiters together and think we are the scourge of the earth but instead do a little digging and find the ones that actually give a shit about what they are doing and you will find that they are worth their weight in gold!!
