Fast Track Recruitment

Universal Laws of Recruitment

Posted by Mitch on 2nd April 2014

This blog is another of those ‘work in progress’ ideas that I always think I’ll come back and add to, but never do.

Here are my first two contributions. One is blindingly obvious, the other less so.

1. The more cliches in a job advertisement, the weaker the relationship between the recruitment agency and the hiring company.

2. If you put “Technical Headhunter of Unreachable Talent” or “Professor of Placements” as your job title on LinkedIn, the chances are that you’re a bit of a twat and at worst, you play banjo for England.

Feel free to add your own.
