“Finding a job, it’s just like dating isn’t it” – swiping left through a sea of monotonous jobs that claim they have fun culture and lots of great benefits, but the reality is, there’s a broken ping pong table in the corner and a warm beer is waiting for you on a Friday night.
Anyway, I digress….
Since the nation has been gripped with Love Island it’s had me thinking about how much Recruiters are like serial daters and the candidates just don’t understand why they can’t get a text back from what they thought was the “BEST. DATE. EVER”. So why do serial daters mess you around? Why do they have the best chat up lines but refuse to give you their number?
I thought I’d clear up why we, recruiters that is, not serial daters, do the things we do, that may seem downright rude to the “outside world”…..
Why do Recruiters keep the name of their client a secret?
Something I wish I could do more of in my job is get back to everybody that emails me, not only out of courtesy but to stop me dreaming about the people I need to email back! But why can’t we fit it all in during the day?
Why so nosey? What’s it got do with us what other jobs you’re considering? We’re just trying to wreck your chances aren’t we?? Well, actually, we do this for your benefit;
I know that Recruiters aren’t usually the first on people’s Valentine’s list, but I hope this has helped clear up some of the frustrations that job seekers have. As for dating, apparently Love Island has had more applications for next year than Cambridge University, but worry not, Williams Kent are always accepting applications for HR roles!
