I hate time-wasting recruiters

Why do some recruiters call you up to tell you about a fantastic opportunity, when really all they want is your details to spam the shit out of your inbox at a later date? What’s the point? I don’t see the point, do you? I’m a recruiter, if I have a job for you, I’ll get in touch, if I don’t, I’d rather be honest with you and let you know what I do and don’t have, and if I can’t help you, I’ll forward you to someone who might be able to instead.

It really gets my goat, when cowboy recruiters feel the need to get in touch and give their sales pitch about that awesome job down in who-gives-a-crap-place, paying up to £40k, that is soooo perfect for you, but really it’s a con, there is nothing, apart from, ‘you must come in and register with us with your passport, your driving license, your goldfish’s date of birth and sign these documents that make you our property for ever *cue evil laugh*.’ No.

Don’t waste my time. I hate it. Waste my time, you go into the blocked calls zone on my phone. And don’t ask me to connect on LinkedIn, only to want to gain access to my connections.

I don’t want to time waste my candidates either. I don’t see the point. I’m new setting up by myself, so although I have roles across the industry, I don’t have as many as a recruitment agency might do. I’m slowly building up my network of candidates and clients, but it’s just me, so although I work 14 hours a day, am available all the time on the phone, or email or Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn, it is just me, no resourcer [yet], so if I don’t have something, I’ll tell you. I’m an upfront, straight to the top, a chatty, fun recruiter who builds on good relationships with my candidates and clients.

If you disagree and think I’ve been crap, feel free to comment.

Stop Cancelling At The Last Minute

It really fucks me off when people cancel at the last minute. Even worse, when there is no reason to. If an emergency has come up or something pretty serious with work is in the spotlight, then fine, I understand but don’t cancel at the last last minute, you know like, 2 minutes before, because you just felt like it.

It’s not on. It’s plain bloody rude.

I don’t know why people feel the need to do it. If you’re not coming, give me some sort of heads up and let me know. I’d appreciate the honesty. Don’t waste my time. I hate time wasters, and I bloody hate being taken for a ride. If you want my help, I’ll help you, if you want to have a laugh and a joke, go to a comedy club.

I’m sure it’s happen to you before, so I doubt you’d like it, so please don’t be one of those people and take the absolute mick and not bother. In this day and age, you know, with technology, we can contact people via text, phone, email or social network to let them know about pretty much anything, and that includes the message ”I can’t come.” I’d rather see that and know not to waste a journey that to be stood up in a coffee shop, waiting for you to show, only to be sat alone, looking like an over-eager meerkat scanning the door every time someone walks in.

I’m a recruiter. I’m your recruiter. I’ll be upfront and honest with you, and I expect the same. I don’t want to run around chasing after you all the time. This is a working relationship that works both ways. I work from home, in West London and don’t frequent Central London that much but when I do, because I know of good talent, I come and visit and see good talent, when I see it.

In future, if you can’t make it, just let me know, even giving me 30 minutes notice, is better for me than none at all. It’s important to have a good professional relationship, so let’s keep each other on the good books, yeah?

Great.
