Check out this post on Recruiting Blogs titled Top 10 Dumbest Things Recruiters Do: And the Winner Is…
The number one dumbest thing a recruiter does is “not managing the candidate experience,” which includes “every communication.”
I read that and thought, you know, this might be the same dumbest thing a job seeker does…. NOT MANAGE THE JOB SEARCH.
Losing phone numbers, missing appointments, forgetting which version of which resume you submitted, letting important contacts slip through the cracks, not logging important information (how would you forget that part of the conversation??), etc.
I don’t want to overwhelm you, but a job search is a lot of work. You will have a ton of information come your way.
It’s up to you… are you making the dumbest mistake a job seeker could make?
(I’m sure there are other “dumbest things” we could list, but I wanted to draw the correlation between what recruiter issues are and what job seeker issues are… )
