Or - Are you willing to admit it?

Did you ever hire someone due to her/his looks and or personality in spite of not being the best candidate?

I admit it.... I hired a young woman who killed me with her beauty and way of speaking. She did have a great profile for the role but thing is she was the 4th application I read out of 30-something.. Prefering skills testing, I rarely interview but on that round, I selected her as the first and only interview for that job. I was crazy about her from the first minute and didnt even look at any other applications.

Howwwwever….. ,and before anyone puts me in the pillory and throws their digital tomatoes at me, I vigorously plead NOT GUILTY of any Moral Wrongdoing due to being exposed to Extenuating Circumstances!!

She was a Parisian woman and like many Parisians, she had her eyelids half closed ( if you’ve ever been to Paris, you may have probably noticed this crazy thing) and spoke with a very thick French accent in English… It was like a spell on me** Thats gotta be worth a Pardon on the moral front right?😉😎

Objectively, I know it was truly nasty but I’m super happy I did it because its been 18 years we have been together😋

I had other situations where the candidate was super outgoing and we synched in awesomely but I was able to resist and seek the best fitting profile.

Someone else messed up like me? Or rather, do you dare tell your mess-ups as a recruiter ?😉

Ever feel one candidate is slightly better than another one but because somehow you synched better with the other candidate you chose that person?

C'est la vie les amis..

Have you ever worked with a recruiter or a staffing company before? Legitimate staffing companies don't cost the applicant a dime, they have access to multiple employers in your area, and they're another set of eyes looking for positions that fit your skills and interests. Google "Staffing Companies Near Me" and do some research on the right company for you!

Question for #Employers /#Recruiters / #Headhunters I'm sure #jobseekers might be interested in your response.

General questions for #Employers, #Recruiters and #Headhunters: How much work experience (years) equates to a 2 or 4 year degree in your opinion? And how many past job experiences is too many? I've always been told to keep your resume short.

I have recruiters call me with jobs 'they' think I can do. I look at the e-mails they send me and do not see any of the software I have experience and knowledge of. The recruiters find 'one word' in my LinkedIn profile and extrapolate that I can do the job they want filled so a credit comes their way. I have posted that I do not wish to relocate, but most recruiters ignore that statement. What gives?

The employer or recruiter has your resume, but still expects you to fill out a long job application, or visa versa. They have your job application, but also want a Resume or CV. Seems like its like they are checking off boxes even if the request is a waste of time for you and them. Sort of like a teacher who sends home, home work for the sake of home work. Even if its not related to the work done in class.
