When people say that to me, I generally do three things:
- Smile and sympathise with them
- Have a look at their website
- Give them a call and ask them in the nicest possible way, “Would you apply to work for you?”
There is no doubt that it’s a job seekers market out there. Job applicants have handfuls of opportunities to mull over, but there are many jobs going unfilled. Volume recruiters regularly over offer to compensate for those that are reneged upon.
