Executive Search Firms: Are they doing their jobs?
Recently, Spineblogger spoke with a few unemployed industry veterans that expressed their displeasure with the poor quality of representation by executive search firms in the industry. The number one complaint was how unprofessional these people are in following up and identifying potential opportunities within the marketplace. Spineblogger assured them that most firms do not represent the candidate, they represent the company that butters their bread. The unemployed are a commodity product. Most of these veterans understood that, yet, their complaint was lack of follow-up and helping the potential candidate prepare for the interview. Spineblogger wants to know what you think and who are the companies that do a great job and a poor job? Want to post a job? It's your blogsite!
