I think I’m going to contact a bunch of legal recruiters and tell them I’m looking to hire, set a bunch of calls just to take up their time, then reveal that I’m not really hiring after all. Just had the most unprofessional experience with a recruiter who bait and switched a position just to set a call and then hung up in the middle without calling back. What a waste of time.

It’s a small shop in Denver. I really just can’t believe anyone would be that unprofessional.

I had a crazy wtf experience with a Parker Lynch recruiter a few years ago. I think she was also out of Denver! I was actually looking to lateral at the time, but she was clearly useless so I cut her loose after one call. She never stopped calling, texting and emailing me, even when I told her I accepted a job. When I told her that I needed her to stop, she told me that I had just burned a bridge and it would come back to haunt me 😳

funny

It happens. Just be glad you don’t have their job. Not all recruiters are jerks. Move on
