“Come on, don’t be so harsh on this un­skilled cat­e­gory of de­gree hold­ers.”

“I am a re­cruiter my­self and in all hon­esty, most re­cruiters do not do the things that they are sup­pose to. In fact, ma­jor­ity of re­cruiters will not even call or ac­knowl­edge re­ceipt of an ap­pli­ca­tion. These sim­ple things can help peo­ple who are look­ing for some as­sur­ance and mo­ti­va­tion. The re­cruiters have lit­er­ally for­got­ten the art of be­ing a good re­cruiter. Never judge a book by its cover and never take a CV for any­thing but words on a piece of pa­per. Speak to ev­ery­one who has shown you the courtesy in re­spond­ing - who knows, per­haps they could be your next client!”

“Are you among those on LinkedIn who ask peo­ple to like and com­ment on the job posts to be in­vited for an in­ter­view? If yes, then you de­serve that!!!!”

“I think if u want per­fect spell­ing in cv.. u need to re­cive cv in the lan­guaje of apli­cant.. just in this mo­ment u will re­al­ized u have bad spell­ing..”
