Decoding Executive Recruiter Feedback

Getting executive recruiter feedback ( if you are lucky enough to get it) can send a job seeker into a spiral of “I gotta fix this” mode.

Then you get more feedback, and you want to make improvements and tweaks to please that person, too.

Multiply this out with many black hole job posting applications and unresponded-to-networking-outreaches; you can see how a job seeker can spiral downward into the feedback vortex thinking something is wrong with them.

You can lose your identity.

I have a saying: “Show your resume to 50 people and get 75 opinions.”

It’s a mess…who do you believe?

What’s an executive job seeker to do?

In today’s video, I show you how to decode recruiter feedback and see if it’s worth applying.
All feedback is not created equal.

Caution warning: this is a bit of a stream of thought video and less of a list. Admittedly, I was a little tired and couldn’t put my thoughts in an organized manner, but I think I got my point across.

You tell me. Lol.

Progress…not perfection.

Stay strong together, people.
