I would definitely say “hey let’s set up some time to chat” and then just check in with them, ask them how they’re doing, what they’re working on. And then try to not use accusatory language but use I statements. “One thing I learned the hard way is how important language can be and how to navigate corporate work spaces.” Are you open to hearing some feedback around this topic?

Depends—what are specific examples of this person being unprofessional?

Dear Peanut paying companies (TCS especially), don’t you have some basic manner in valuing the precious time of Candidates? When you’re scheduling interviews, you asked about the current salary and expectation. Even though knowing the peanut you’re going to offer is way below Candidate’s current salary, why are you still processing for further interviews? Don’t you ashamed of yourself calling as a Recruiter? These are basic manners/commonsense, which you guys are unaware of!!!
