Recruiter And Reputation.
Ten years ago I started a discussion in my first book about the recruitment process, and many of my ideas seem still to be valid. Today work-life will no longer be only about building a resumé but building your reputation. Exciting companies will not be filled with people sending in their traditional resumés; they will be occupied by individuals with an excellent reputation built on how they do things. Or as Apple puts it: “You’re amazing - we should talk.”
But there is another aspect that is interesting since I noticed that a majority of the talents that recruiters are looking for say that they research the recruiter's reputation before deciding how to answer the approach. With very few exceptions I would say that many recruiters are as unaware of their reputation as the rest of us which will affect their ability to attract the best talents.
