Should there be a Recruitment Vomit Hall of Shame?
Is it any wonder why recruiters get a bad rep? I get REALLY fed up with the lazy way that recruiters and the companies they work for send emails like the one I have just received below, from a recruitment agency I have never spoken to.
At a recent conference someone referred to the overload of useless information in social media as ‘vomit’. Spot on! This isn’t social media but it is a perfect example of recruitment vomit.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to check whether any new IT vacancies have emerged since we last spoke?
We are offering a reduced fee arrangement on all permanent vacancies registered before the end of the month – if you would like details of the reduced fee structure drop me a quick reply or feel free to call. As always there is no obligation to interview candidates submitted by XXX and no fees apply unless a candidate Introduced by us is offered and accepts a role with you. Should you be seeking temporary IT contractors please contact me and I will be pleased to discuss ways in which we can make the exercise as cost effective and hassle free as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.
No wonder they have to offer reduced rates if this is how they get their business?
I haven’t outed the recruitment agency concerned, but maybe I should? Maybe there should be a recruitment vomit hall of shame?
