I’m not sure why recruiters think they’re doing the work of angels.. check out section 3 below. Why are you even trained to undercut pay? Just pay everyone honestly.

Its in the recruiters interest to get more money, because they get 15 or 20 percent of the salary they book.

My guess is she went out of her way to include that (alone on its own line!) as a little self promotion, like “I wouldnt let them undercut this guy, I am a great negotiator, you should work with me!” and a very mild shoutout to the employer.

Of course that should be the norm. Undercutting shouldnt even exist. But everybody takes pride in paying as little as possible for anything/anyone now.

Everyone assumes what she’s saying is true. Most of these platitudes are complete bs.

It’s not necessarily in the interests of the recruiter as the recruiting agency will get the money (unless they’re running their own business). Some senior recruiters might have a bonus scheme but it’s rare. Lot of these recruiters are salary. A recruiters reputation is everything however.

LinkedIn has morphed into a disgusting Facebook newsfeed of humble brags and self promotions.

Just had my yearly summative. Every year I am told what an amazing teacher I am. And every year I am told my personality needs work. All because I work instead of socialize during my plan time. My personality won't change -I am who I am- and people who actually take the time to understand me end up enjoying my company. Just wondering if these principals think they will convert a focused, goal-oriented introvert into an extrovert just to fit their idea of what an educator should be.
