Mark & Michael or anyone else with info ...
I recently listened to your podcast 2006/10/2 "Contacting Recruiters" and your final point there was to "insist" that the recruiter doesn't "spam" my resume around.
1. Now I am likely like a bunch of people, and I have posted my resume around, Workopolis.com, Monster.com, etc.
2. I have also worked with some recruiters and I never insisted that they do not Spam my resume.
3. I have sent my resume out to a number of companies, but based on your podcast, the company might not be forthcoming with the specific reason why they didn't contact me.
Perhaps I am being weeded out because they see that they need to pay a recruiter fee?
What can I do at this point?
If I contact a company directly, is there a way I can help the company not pay that fee?
Since your podcast I have removed my resume from Workopolis.com based on your advice. Thanks for the great podcasts. Keep up the effort!
