Our client needs an expertise that we don’t have on our Development team, so we are engaging a recruiting firm to help us. First, the agency submitted someone who was hired almost immediately by another client. Then they send us someone who we liked, but then complained that it took a few days to make a decision, then it turned out the person was already fired by our client. I have always hated working with recruiters that I don’t directly manage for this very reason. Over the years, when I manage recruiters directly I really want hard working, resilient and detailed people and take pains to ensure that happens – unfortunately, when I work with recruiters I don;t directly manage, I have to work with the things that I specifically don’t like to work with.
