Inside Corporate Recruiting Practices

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to share my worldview a little with JibberJobber Ask The Expert (ATE) listeners. Jason Alba and I had a detailed discussion you can listen to below:

Some things I realized:
– Talking to a recruiter should not be scary.
– That proverbial “resume black hole”? Yeah. It’s me. A well-meaning but overly busy recruiter who can’t possibly read all the email and submissions than come in.
– I really, really care about people and jobs. I may or may not have become suddenly and unexpectedly emotional at the end of the call. Wow. Surprising to say the least, but it’s WHY I do this job.

The following two tabs change content below.
