Be Nice to Us
Gretchen over at the Microsoft Technical Careers Blog has come up with a brilliant idea!!!!
Be Nice to a Recruiter Month
Let’s make January “Be Nice to a Recruiter Month.” :) Return each call or email you receive for a recruiter. If you aren’t interested in the opportunity, just say, “Thank you so much for contacting me about this role. While I am very happy in my current job, I would appreciate it if you would forward me the job description so that I might consider whether I know anyone who may be qualified and interested.”
That’s not so hard. Whadaya think?
sniff.... God Bless that woman.. sniff.
Seriously jump over there and read the entire piece plus the source and the comments. Worthwhile. Very worthwhile.
