Good post by Jason Goldberg at Jobster, who talks about his recent read of James Frey's book,
"A Million Little Pieces." On Larry King, Frey had some unbelievable comments regarding the recent hullabaloo associated with his book:
"I stand by the book. Sure I made up some parts of it, but it's mostly true and is my memoir. It's not fiction, it's mostly true and I stand by it."
He got me to thinking about how we recruiters represent our company and/or the specific job we're peddlin'. How would we rate on the "truth in advertisement" scale? It's these kind of things that give recruiters a bad name. Are we telling the truth about compensation, or are we fudging to get their interest? Are they really a perfect fit for the role or are we doing all we can to squeeze them in to the requirements? Are we really going to call them back or are we just trying to make them feel good?
With regard to this posting ... sure, I made up some parts of it, but it's mostly true and is my posting. It's not fiction, it's mostly true and I stand by it...sort of.
Gimme a break.
