adhunter fee'. You would preserve the professionalism of our industry as executive search consultants if you would please make the distinction.
Anyway, you spent more time referring to the 'hidden talent pool' as I think it is more commonly known and seemed to leave the conversation about recruitment fees a loose end.
Oh, this is what you said:
"...offer a variety of recruitment services that can be tailored as a solution to the unique needs and budget of your clients..."

ing new ideas. We've needed a higher level of honesty and mutual respect on a network for quite a while now, and it means a lot to be a part of something healthy over here. With the sake of sounding cheezy, it just feels good to be here . . . like a great relationship where we can be ourselves and not worry about being bludgeoned for presenting an alternate viewpoint or making an observation that challenges the 'Sacred Cows' that many will so vehemently protect in an effort to preserve the money trail.
Over here, you can say what everyone always wanted to say (or present an idea that doesn't fall lockstep with the 'experts consensus') . . . without having the fear that exists on other networks that has resulted from watching so many true pioneers get excommunicated or bloodied for.

I wonder what Butchie's doing nowadays since almost everyone's directory is intranet-based? And while I agree that the phone is a great tool, who among us would trade the internet and social media for the old days of the paper directory?…
