My favorite recruiter move is when they call me out of the blue, say “Hi I’m Bob Smith” and then pause as if I’m supposed to greet them like we’re old college buddies.

Half of their firms sound like my PE fund clients so I usually spend the first couple seconds panicking that it’s someone I should know.

Yeah, I just very politely say “I’m sorry, what company are you with?” (Just on the off chance its a client randomly calling, which does happen). And then eventually it’ll come out that they are a recruiter and I say “not interested.” Usually they give up their act and hang up on me without even saying bye. Funny how their tone changes so quickly.

I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction.
Appreciate any input.

Am I the only one that runs into this? Halfway into an interview it’s apparent you know the role better than the hiring manager does. As soon as this happens I always feel like I am wasting my time because I know they’re likely going to look for a less experienced candidate. Unfortunately I don’t have the years of experience for senior manager/director roles so it seems I run into this very often for manager level roles.
