There’s not so much an employment problem as there is a recruiting problem. Recruiters do much more harm than good, to both job seekers and employers. Contract agency recruiters are the worst, idiots of the business village, but all types of companies are reported here. Lying, refusing to respond, ruining chances with botched submissions, spamming, sheer incompetence — those are the losers we’re calling out.
Before we got fed up and quit publishing our phone number on the various job boards (CareerBuilder, Dice, Monster), the linked recording on YouTube is exactly the sort of message we could expect. Listen to it over and over, earphones or speakers, but you’ll still never be able to understand it. THESE are the wastes of oxygen that stand between candidates and employers.
