Hi Wendii and Todd, thank you for your response to my question on Linkedin, and hello to Mark, Mike and the rest of the MT community.
When a recruiter asks, "Would you know anyone who might be interested in this role", the MT podcast recommends trying to help them.
If I know people that are in similar roles but I do not know if they would be interested in changing, how would I best handle the situation? Would I simply gave the people's name and phone numbers to the recruiter? Or would I say, let me check for you, call the person and ask if they are interested, and then revert to the recruiter?
Is there a conflict of interest with my employer if the person is working with my employer?
In cases where I honestly do not know of anybody, I would probably say that I am sorry but no one comes to mind. Does that reflect poorly on me that my network isn't big enough to have someone in mind? It also fails to help the recruiter, when the MT podcasts recommend helping the recruiter.
I'd like to understand better, how to handle recruiters requests for other people who might be interested in a role. Please respond when you have a chance.
