Don’t Be An Asshole!

In the words of the great Chris Berman, “C’mon man.”  Now here at A Sales Guy Recruiting, we’re known as Badasses, so guess what?  We say it like it is, no BS about it. So with the poetic freedom I am given in my position, I say “C’mon man, don’t be an asshole.” What do I mean by this?  If you’re someone out there in the job market, and I am the recruiter trying to HELP YOU find a job, then DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE!  Why would someone actively seeking a job apply through a recruiting firm  (you know, a badass firm that can get you a job better than any other firm) and then not respond when contacted!?   This truly baffles me.. As a badass recruiter, I don’t go by the book.  Tell me what you want, I can either find a great fit for you or not – but how am I supposed to help if you don’t respond to my phone calls, emails, texts, ANYTHING!? Now this may sound harsh, and you may be thinking I’m the A**hole, but I must use this as a teaching point to those applying for a job… RESPOND! Quite frankly, I am not in this business to waste my time.  I don’t care if you found another job, applied with other companies, or are planning on moving countries or to Mars for that matter – just tell me so I stop wasting your time, and mine. The point of having a badass recruiter like me, is to help you find the job you want, and deserve. I invite you to talk to the candidates I work with, and those who have kick ass jobs because of the time we put in to our candidates at ASG.  I personally spend countless hours FIGHTING for the position that is right for you.  I even consider some of the candidates I have worked with my friends at this point because of how much time we spend communicating back and forth!  Now if you don’t want this help, then just do me a favor and RESPOND to tell me. For millennial’s (which is myself included) we are on our phones all the time.  We have apps for everything, so I know when I connect with you on LinkedIn , email you, text you, etc., you see it.  In reference to my colleague Bob Rollins blog post “I had her at Yes Ma’am,” it is just a common courtesy to treat others with respect, and RESPOND! My fellow badasses at ASG Recruiting and I have found ourselves questioning week in and week out why someone would apply for a job, then not  get back to us during our countless attempts of reaching you.  Like I said before, we don’t care what the situation is… Just let me know, don’t be an asshole! As the most badass recruiting firm, I would be jumping all over the chance to find a job through us, because guess what, we’re good at what we do! Just respond to find out on your own, don’t be that asshole. Now reach out if you want the help, I WILL get back to you if you have that badass talent we are always looking for:
