I typically frequent jg's jobster blog more than the average-joe, but I needed a prompting today from Heather. Thanks for the reminder.
Good post highlighting Peter Weddle's insight in to the world of recruiting.
Here's Peter's four factors for "figuring out recruiters:" (can it really be done?)
Factor #1: Recruiters are not experts in your occupation or profession.
Factor #2: Most recruiters listened to their mother.
Factor #3: Most recruiters are not intentionally rude or unpleasant to work with.
Factor #4: Recruiters are not responsible for job seekers’ success.
Hmmm...what'cha think, recruiters? Does Weddle nail it down pretty well?
It's worth the full read - go for it
