...before driving across town to shake hands with them, they tell you, "Thanks for the resume.", never to be heard from again. I've got a temporary worker in my department who has had two or three of these useless "appointments" in the past few weeks. I presume she posted her resume somewhere and is now getting calls from these headhunters. Could she tell the next one who calls: 1. Thanks for contacting me. 2. I've gotten several "interview" requests. Before I schedule time out of my work day to come visit you, would you mind reviewing my resume and telling me about some of the positions you think might be a good fit. Would it be too presumptuous for her to say she understands the need to meet in person before actually being sent to the client's site for an interview. But, presuming she presents herself well (which she does), are they working on positions right now that would be a good fit? Any other suggestions for avoiding the quota-chasing, resume-collecting headhunter? I know there are good ones out there. What's the best way to cull them from all the bad ones.
