Imagine going up to someone at a bar and asking if they wanna go out with you. and then when they say "sure," you say, "great. tell me why I should take you out and maybe we'll go get drinks. look forward to considering it!"

That's recruiters. So effing sick of it.

Many times, they're looking for a short conversational blurb they can copy-paste when passing your profile around.

Instead, think of it as 'do you want to meet my hot friend?' and when you say yes, they want your best line that they can pass along.

Recruiters aren't for 'dating.' They're for making introductions.

That's fair. Had they not asked for a full on application and cover letter.

Recruiters are good for Junior to midlevel. After that they don’t exist.

Christian men, why are there so few of you in churches? One seasoned deaconess at my church theorizes it’s because 1) Men who go astray tend not to come back for reasons of guilt, whereas women who do tend to rely on their faith/church families even more for support 2) Many churches are no longer missional. So the sense of purpose, of building something etc. is lost for men. Curious to know what you think, and if you can invite your male friends. We need husbands over here. 😅
