Important message for all recruiters

I think all recruiters should read this, especially the ones in the West, since it happens there so much!
I live in The Netherlands and I do have a job, but somehow when I am being called by a recruiter, even though I have WORKED for the last 4 years and I still work, they still focus on the one year I didn't work and they want to know why, because according to there opinion, possible employers might be hesitant to hire people who have worked at multiple companies or have a gap in there resume. This is utter nonsense! The article below explains why I think that is not true.


Recruiters and Hiring Managers. We place so much emphasis on trivial things. There is much more to a person than just passing / failing an interview.

I've created some of the  strongest performing teams. Why? Because I hire overqualified people.  I don’t judge candidates based on a gap in work history. I don’t just hire a resume. I focus on the real person.

Using HR software to pre-screen the resumes you receive is not always effective. Automating the hiring process eliminates some good candidates. Plus, if someone takes time to craft a resume, you should at least take the time to read it.

Take the time to get to know your candidates. Don't jump to conclusions without hearing directly from the person. Focus on what value they can bring instead of just looking for excuses to cross them off an inflexible checklist.

  1. No one will understand HR recruitment policy only the boss of the company lol.

    1. That's a possibility...and it is all about making money with the people they want, not with the people who are actually right for that job.
