Experiences please. Talk to me. You trust em?
The one who used to call me all the time was just an irritation. They'd leave increasingly severe sounding voicemails asking me to call them back without saying who they worked for. As it turns out all they were trying to do was offer me a job in Guernsey, which I didn't want (GUERNSEY for fuck's sake).
Not sure what you can do with this information.
He/why they have approached you. Remember they act for the employer who is their client, and while they want to get a deal that both sides are happy with, their duty will usually lie with the employer.
(I'm assuming you mean headhunters and not recruitment consultants/ agents.)
Actually, i think i kind of hate them all.
Can be a pain in the hole when you don't
the title of a fun Danish film you should watch
try to get them on side and be affable, but remain guarded.
There is potential they'll work hard for you, but also the company, to try and get you placed, because that is their bonus.
It's all about the ICF innit ;)
are you a headhunter?
I will keep wary. It might be 85 per cent, but it might just be someone out to fill quotas so i'll dig a bit.
you spelled that wrong, div!
I don't. I've met a lot of them before.
and shall from this day forward nothing.
I mean they have a specific job in mind that is specifically a job you're qualified for and, moreover, you are the person who's wanted for that job so they'll offer you a massive payrise.
Some twerp in a recruitment agency just ringing round to try to make that month's commission, or some dude in HR ringing you up to see if you're free for a job isn't a headhunter.
I know! This is what is happening. I'm just not used to being aggressively courted by a company. It's not a giant payrise though.
I don't know why it's stuck in my head. I never read it, even, but when I see Headhunters written down that's what I think of.
cackles loudly in his undersea home
We got a handwritten letter through the door the other night from someone offering to buy our house and to pay for the home information pack. Obviously a total scam by estate agents whereby the 'interested potential purchaser' will either buy the house to let or did out that we'd consider selling and pass us on to the estate agents. Know this because a very similar types version came through the door recently.
Bit sad considering my street is about 50% couples in their sixties and seventies with grown up children and both my neighbours are widows.
About covering sick days for the angel burger king when youre employed in Hammersmith burger king isnt the same as being headhunted. Doesnt work though,
its like when someone in sales calls themselves and executive... so half the time there will be no real job, half the time its worth a chat.
Not good enough?
