A dinner idea to share based on a candidate conversation today:
As ridiculous as this might sound, our job is to help you land your next opportunity and to put you in the best light possible.
Therefore, we should be providing you suggestions on your resume if we think it will be beneficial to you, based on what we know about the role and company.
BUT, it’s up to you to decide if it makes sense to you and is applicable.
It is also OK to ask a recruiter for their opinion and to provide any suggestions.
We’re not cheap to an employer, therefore, please hold us accountable, make us earn our keep, AND it’s a free service to you as a candidate.
Opportunity, You, Recruiter – Better than any 3 meat lasagna!
