Had an interview with a recruiter who laughed at me when I said I was looking for a senior role. Laundry service, I’m sorry, but you should start hiring people who respect people.

Well this person works at Laundry Service, so they have no self respect to start with.

My work is good and my experience and level of work is completely senior. Been getting offer from way better places for senior roles. I was honestly just networking for future in case she went somewhere cool. She even said: “maybe we can talk when you are actually a senior” then hang up.

Any recruiter who would treat you that way only has a job because the agency they work for is too incompetent to know not to hire them.

Lol so so true! Worst part is their CCO seems like a decent person

They’ve had an open listing for a “Copywriter” role, neither junior nor senior, for what feels like a year. No wonder it hasn’t been filled.

I have to assume that was some kind of shitty “upper handing” technique, and not an honest human response to your statement of interest. Because that would be the response of a psychopath. “Oh, it wants things, how droll."

Nah. She is just a bad recruiter and an even worst person. How do we allow as creatives to have recruiters have so much power over us? They need good talent more than we need them.

Buuuuut, are u senior?

I’m not affected by it. I’m more concerned about agencies hiring people who don’t respect other people. It was simply a commentary. We are guilty of allowing this to keep happening. I know my value but new people in the industry who are still looking for that value can be discouraged and feel upset about this. People like her should be taken out of their positions. Respect should be the one thing every single position in any industry should include.

I didn’t get an answer on career pivot but would any program managers know someone who can conduct a mock interview? The person who did my resume is charging $170 and I didn’t know if I should go that route or find someone in the field. (Should you pay for a mock?) TIA.
