I HATE recruiters So I'm overqualified for a reception position. I've had positions where I've tackled heavy phone lines, interacted professionally with clients in the office and performed heavy data entry with a HUGE emphasis on accuracy. So I'm not being submitted for a reception position when I need the money; becasue I don't have the "core competancy". THEN--- I was almost "disqualified" because of a misdemeanor ticket I got 10 years for underage drinking because in THEIR files, they ed it a "felony". This shouldn't even be coming up on my background check. Not in a town where pot is legal. WTF?!!! BTW, this is Robert Half. As an office worker, I know that it takes two braincells to not make a stupid mistake like this. Again, WTF?!!

Third parties do make things more complex When it is just you and the employer, you can follow-up with them. When it is you and a recruiter, you have to the recruiter as to the next move. Really, you are the only one with your own best interest at heart. Now, I am sure the recruiter cares, but the reality of the situation is that they are representing a number of people and they just want to get someone in there to please the employer and make their commission. When it is just you and the employer, you want to get you in there.

    Recruiters R Being Riffed Faster Than Fleas. This is not the economy for 'wanting' to become a recruiter. Also, unlike executive search -where we pick our own people- employment agency 'recruiters' [they are not really recruiters] spend a large part of their day turning people away. People like Paxs who have a family but no job. Try that for a couple of weeks and then see if you are still wagging that tail with your loopy look and tongue hanging out. I'm not picking on you- it is just that being in the employment agency business is rewarding financially to those who can sustain but it is also emotionally wearing. Giving out vanilla reasons why someone is not qualified for a job -over and over again- is not a job for just anyone. On the other hand, if you have ice in your veins than, yes, maybe...

    That agency only hears what it wants...like most of them... they could care less what your career aspirations might be... they are working for their "clients" which are the companies... not for the individuals...that go in for the jobs ....

    Three Things, Catz: 1. "...they could care less..." is correctly said, "...they couldn't care less...". Said your way -the typiy said incorrectly way- means they DO care. 2. "...they are working for their "clients"..." is true but you've not said anything new; everybody here knows that already. 3. "...that go in for the jobs..." is incorrect- 'that' is for 'things', 'who'/'whom' is for people. Are you unemployed? Commenting about a receptionist while your own grammar sucks is very funny. And as I said, Robert Half caters to the F500 and the Big 8's/6's/4's so there is a reason they are picky. Maybe you should also not apply at Robert Half, Catz... Yes, I know what you are thinking: "Go fuck yourself, HHP". Duh. But you see, for every ten people here who are thinking, "Go fuck yourself, HHP", there are three who have stopped to make a mental note to double check their resume for accuracy and will keep in mind how best to articulate, enunciate and pronounce their words at their next interview. It is those 10/3 to whom I am speaking. pf

    I'm Self Employed, Recruit For F500 Co's & As most -if not all- the regulars know, I recruit at salaries that start at about $100K. I recruit those who are minimally earning about $85K. I stress Excellence since 'excellence' is a good habit to follow. Doing it your way, being a slob here but not there, well, for an old guy like me, that is too many hats to wear. I just love how 'catz' like you always have a ready reason why you can live in mediocrity; as if it is acceptable here but not there. I guess you can turn on a dime. I tend to believe that bad habits follow us and show up at the worst possible times. Maybe it is time for some more of my,

    I am sorry. I did not read your post. I did read another post that you wrote. It read "UR" for "your" and it had numerous other sloppy grammatical errors. Does the word "hypocrite" mean anything to you?

    Whoa! Nice Try, Catz, LOL! You are suggesting my using standard shortcuts is the same as your using poorly said phrases that are ingrained in ignorance? Do you have any idea how many people say, "I could care less" and do not realize how incorrect that statement is? Do you have any idea how many people mistakenly use 'that' for 'who'? Way too many. There is a distinct difference between using Internet shortcuts vs. using poor grammar. You should stick with what an asshole I am and on the side, work to improve your grammar instead of living in denial. As I said, suggesting that it is acceptable to use poor grammar (unknowingly) is your biggest lie du jour. You need to clean up your English/grammar and just don't want to admit it. It is easy to ID me as an ass; it is much more difficult to admit in the public domain that one ought to make up for what was not gained back in 4th grade English classes.

    perfectionists would know the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony. Jaywalking can be considered a misdemeanor, but you have megacorporations thieving taxpayers as a "subprime bailout". Also, she didn't know how to market my skills to a receptionist/admin position when I've been doing admin/phone for a very long time in other positions. These things are easily transferrable, anybody can do it. I did. Third, I've been on the hiring end and they submit their favorite people. Not the people qualified to do the job on any level. Robert Half is getting in the way as far as i'm concerned and I'm viewing them as wasteful to everyone.

    And yet after all these years they have been highly successful, so they must be doing someting right. You're acting as if you're owed something. Just move on if they're not a good fit. They have pretty much told you they are moving on -- have they not?

    i beg to differ. i've seen them on the hiring end. When someone asked them for a recruit with a specific skillset, they only sent in their favorite people who didn't have the skillset that was asked for. They don't know what they're doing for specific positions. Also the nitpickiness is just a big dog and pony show. Employers just want cost savings...

    Okay. Well, then, you have two choices, as I see it. 1) Continue to let them bum you out, or 2) Walk away and don't let them bother you any more. You're not going to get work out of them either way, so you might as well move on and take care of YOU.

    I Don't Condone What They Did. Especially Since I wasn't even there. So what do I know? I was, however, talking to the gallery. As I often do. Reminding those reading your post that if their shoes aren't shined and their hair isn't combed and they would never be seen walking the catwalk, then perhaps they ought not apply at Robert Half. Capice? I took your post and enlarged on the underlying theme by restating the obvious, Robert Half has a reputation to protect and they will easily and without remorse put that ahead of you. And you. And you.

    Robert Half is the WORST! I've been to their office to meet about a particular job twice. The first time, they forgot about the job and asked if I wanted to work for them. The next time they contacted me, I told them about the first time. They appologized for the bait-&-switch so I agreed to meet with them again. They did the same thing: Offered me a job at RH! These 2 interviews were years apart, BTW. I wonder why all of their recruiters seem/look like they're 18 y.o.? Its a bunch of kids in suits. I'll never let them waste my time again. RH sucks.

    they also try to get job leads from you - in a very sneaky way... As I said before - going through a recruiter - is not always the best way.. May work well for some...but it's not the only way to get a decent job...

    Oh yeah! You are right! They did! LOL! OMG - that's right --- they did phish me for the names of others at my present company! I've never respected RH and I've never met nor heard of anyone ever getting a job through them. Not to dis all recruiters. Some are really, really good. The ones who have been around for years and really know their clients well, for i.e. They can tell you exactly what their client is looking for and how to prep for an interview. Not all recruiters are created equal. Thanks for your post.

    KISS MY ASS! Do Not put down Robert Half Are you jealous of something? Sorry but this really pisses me off that you would say what you did. I am a non-skinny, average looking white woman who can't do a thing with her hair and certainly doesn't have men flocking to her at bars who up until this year worked for Robert Half in California and North Carolina for over 7 years and they NEVER EVER EVER based my abilities and assignments on my looks. I got come kick ass assignments. Even now it is not their fault they can't place me, it's my former employer standing in their way.
