I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I wanted to reach out to anyone who is listening. I'm currently a recruiter in Atlanta, Ga. It's been a great run thus far. I'm currently seeking an entry level Human Resources Generalist position. I would like the opportunity to join and learn all that I can. I'm a former IRS Agent (tax law) who changed careers. I'm more interested in employment law, benefits ect. If you know anyone who is hiring please reach out to me. Thank you in advance.

I recently started at a new firm. I'm a female third year. An older male partner treats me like his LA and has me print things for him when he has a printer on his own desk. He makes me figure out setting hearings when he has his own VERY qualified LA. He makes me do a lot of LA work and it's quite demeaning. I've also even had an associate have me spend hours making his own hearing binder for a case I'm not even on. I get having to do grunt work at times, but I'm getting fed up with this. Tips?

There’s one type of behaviour in the recruitment community that completely baffles me - recruiters or headhunters messaging you out of the blue, asking for a call and the completely disappearing (and even ghosting you) when you answer them. I’m wondering if they care at all about their personal and company reputation? Not helping the HR community reputation either.
