Is it an unpaid advertisement?

Oh dear, I don't think I'd trust him with finding me a job.

Frankly, all he is saying is what all western based recruiters do, for the most part. It's only in Asia where they just collect CVs and wait for a JD where they get a match. What he is professing is something than anybody worth his salt as a recruiter does anyway. But I guess, when times are bad one has to resort to trying to baffle our readers with BS when he's not able to dazzle us with brilliance. Frankly, as a former headhunter myself, I think he is missing the mark and trying to slide in a advertisement, but as a moderator, I'm already wise to the tricks of the trade as are most of our regulars here. Good luck Joe. You are going to need it to stay here unscathed. :cool:

Additionally, he didn't even bother to proof his message that he cut and pasted from an html page which is why you get things like 'cv’s' in your copy and paste. I wonder if he even wrote it?


NB: yeah, he probably wrote it and took it from his page on LinkedIn. He's a freelance recruiter based in Thailand and flogging himself all over the internet.
