Unethical private recruiters are hurting employer brands: Smart Company
This is a story I wrote for Smart Company last year. It made no friends amongst recruiters but their lack of professional practice and ethics means that employers are now creating recruitment departments inside their organisations. They fear that abhorrent practices by some private recruiters are damaging their brands.
I run national online resume writing business and for the last two years, after being deluged by client horror stories of recruiter behaviour, we have been advising clients to go around private recruitment agencies and where possible, apply directly to the company.
