    Default Recruiter: blatant disregard towards professionalism and ethics!

    Recruiter: blatant disregard towards professionalism and ethics! Who knew.

    This morning I received a very interesting email in my inbox, from a colleague of mine at The IRG, who explained that I simply had to read it! This email appears to have gone viral around large and small agencies and is a clear example of how NOT to behave when dealing with a client. As youll see, the email starts with a Rec2Rec blind submitting a candidate of theirs into a contact at this large agency. What follows is a very amusing conversation, which turns into a slagging match with the Rec2Rec showing some very shocking behaviour indeed!

    Nice for them to see it from our point of view.

    I get daily emails from people like regressive and many 3 year olds could write more professionally.

    I don't find this shocking at all. I've been dealing with recruiters for years. Some are lowlifes, some are ok.

    And some are D.A.

    A rec2rec must be some sort of hyper parasite. That's basically caniballism
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    To be fair, I don't think stupidity is restricted to recruiters.

    Lots of people speak before they think. Was in a meeting recently where one girl described a colleague in the next room (whom she didn't know) as "looking like a paedophile". There was a shocked silence, but she still didn't shut up.

    Probably no worse than the sort of e-mails flying round the White House or Buckingham Palace.

    In the past this kind of thing would have just been a bit of a "hoo ha" on the phone, now everyone's embarassing tantrums gets sent round the web.

    I think e-mails exacerbates things, a phone "hoo ha" would probably be a lot less embarassing.

    He's a recruiter. His knowledge of percentages probably comes from the apprentice which means he thinks there is an 11% chance you'll change your mind.

    Just a cute form of getting inbound links to their site, probably completely made up.
