There were a few on here for a while and they were very helpful but people kept posting over and over complaining about recruiters so I’m sure they’re gone now


A couple still appear and answer questions now and then.

I’m here. But I keep telling y’all that fb purges recruiters all the time. I’ve been deleted several times and have to email to be added back in. And to AD1’s point, it’s brutal to come here and see the non-stop bashing of my entire industry so it’s tough to stay engaged after a while.


Me. Here.


And I don’t work for the media group, I’m in the Omnicom Health Group network. Tried to get my “works at” corrected to no avail.

In other words... people keep complaining about being ghosted... so the recruiters are ghosting us.

Hey FishBowl Friends, so I’m currently trying to break into tech sales/FinTech and I feel that due to my previous work history, I might not look like the ideal candidate on paper but I’m an extremely fast learner and very coachable. I’ve been a manger at a gym, got my degree in finance, worked as a client advisor at a top 3 auto dealer in the nation and now I’m a project manager at a solar company. I really want something that’s remote and steady, any recommendations on how to spruce myself up?

The recruiter can get me closer but still not at my desired salary. Otherwise - it would have to go through a long approval process with no guarantee that the salary would even be OK'd.
I'm coming from a small agency, so I could be wrong - but I don't want to sell myself short by accepting the first salary they offer. Do I have any room to negotiate? Or is that risky?

I received what appears to be a random email from an executive recruiter at a firm in NY. She has a client but can not disclose who it is at this time ( ie. Non disclosure agreement ). I sent my resume thinking not much of it. I just received an email saying that my “resume did not parse correctly into the Candidate Management System. In order to move forward, I need your ATS compatible resume ASAP. “
Why does this feel fishy to me? Can someone provide any additional insight

I got an email today from a recruiter about a CD job. The first line in the job description specifically says they are looking for design background, not copy. My current job title is Content & Copy Manager.
