Four Rules for Recruiters


I've got four rules for recruiters, usually (but not always) I delete a recruiter email immediately if they violate any one.

  1. Address me by name (many recruiters do not bother such a simple courtesy).
  2. Talk to me about the position (many recruiters say in their first contact "do you or someone you know..")
  3. The position offered is actually inline with my current skill-set.
  4. Recruiter is respectful in each contact.

Simple, aren't they? You'd be surprised at how few can meet this criteria.
