Favorite Friday: Passive Candidate, Active Candidate

I was reminded of a post I wrote back in June of 2008: How To Be A Passive Candidate When You Are An Active Candidate. For example, if you are unemployed, looking for marketing jobs, you are an ACTIVE candidate.  If you have a job in marketing already, and you aren’t looking for another job, you are a PASSIVE candidate.  Interesting that to a recruiter, you are always a candidate, right?

It’s fun to go back and read my old stuff… I had totally forgotten about this post. I only had 2 suggestions (at the bottom of that post), but they are pretty good…

Are you an “active candidate,” and is that hurting your job search?  Read this post. You need to understand the difference between the two.
