    i disagree with supertech4. a recruiter called me the other day and asked if i was at work. i said yes and she asked that i call her sometime when i was not and gave me a cell where i could reach her at even. she also asked if i had a personal email that she could send me job information to (my work one is listed on my resume). i’m not necessarily looking for a new job, but it’s good to entertain ideas and see what’s out there – i probably wont ask for her life story, but it’s nice prep anyhow!

    This is pretty old school stuff and needs updating given social media and the impact on recruiting. If someone used this advice an executive recruiter would probably shelve them. And she could have said all of that in two or three sentences.

    Hi Pat, I think if I or anyone is looking for a job and following your advice is going to be in big trouble. Recruiters like you say, work with a large numbers of people, they do not like to waste their time with someone who will question them and say “its not convenient to talk”. This will only put one’s resume on hold, and in this market, possibly never find a job.
