I'm a recruiter for the largest staffing and recruiting firm in the country. I'm seeing a lot of people on this thread who are extremely stressed out about finding work, and I think you guys need to start seriously considering working with recruiters to find jobs. NOT ALL RECRUITERS ARE EQUAL! I work for Aerotek, where we value your goals, skills, and interests and we find you a "perfect fit": the job that actually utilizes your experience and abilities. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you are looking for work in the Portland, OR metro area. I can be reached via this thread, and, if you're seriously interested, please let me know and I will share my email.
Thank you for sharing your point of view as a recruiter. I am really struggling finding s recruiter in my sector, procurement. I have had a bad experience with a recruiter but I know not everyone is equal. I really thank you for sharing you point of view.
I appreciate your input, for me and it appears for many of the posters, recruiters don't want to be bothered. I've reached out to recruiters, always professional and congenial, they just either stop responding or ignore me altogether. I've been at this for years. Companies perceive millennials as the only golden ticket and they are only hiring their generation.
I'm just returning to work after maternity leave and I have so much catching up to do. Is it ok to fly under the radar my first few days in the hopes that people won't realized I'm back so I can get up to speed?
My company recently bought out a larger company. I was the office manager for 12, now i'll be the office manager for 60+, multiple locations including out of state, and I'm going to be required to do a bit more travel for work. Is the bump in responsibilities mean I'm due for a bump in pay as well?
I manage a large global team and am really not sure I can take a "true" break on maternity leave. I have a #2 but I think there will be times when I have to still steer the team or make decisions. How do I manage my direct reports effectively while I'm out?
Hello everyone! I am a 20 year old woman who goes to a community college. How can I politely ask an employer regarding salary matters in an interview?
