I know unethical corporate recruiters and agency folks, they are on both sides of the table and I imagine many different faiths.. Getting through the receptionist is not unethical. Might be a good topic but lousy example..
lots have provided me with anywhere this many deaths by unethical recruiting.

"no". How can you start a proper, long-lasting relationship (in this case with a potential candidate or even a client) based on a lie - pretty difficult I would say.
The profession of headhunting is essentially ethical - it is how you do it (or any other job) that will determine whether you are ethical. Ask any investment banker! (sorry, cheap shot)
As to the "faith" factor - the question of ethics is not limited to a person with "faith" - it comes down to what your values and beliefs are (irrespective of your religion or lack thereof). The sooner the world recognises a person's fundamental beliefs and values are actually more imprtant than their religious "brand", the better we all will be - a lot of nasty things have been done over the centuries in the name of religion (and are still being done, whether it is improperly invading other countries or a suicide bombing). Sorry, I got a little off track there...…
ghts for people regardless of sexual orientation - including the right to marry & adopt children. In an age where we're demanding authenticity & transparency, I don't think anyone should feel ashamed of who they are.
Yet I have to confess the whole idea of "coming out" at work seems unnecessary. People don't "come out" as straight, or celibate, or as virgins, or as swingers for that matter. Perhaps the military's "don't ask, don't tell policy" is a good one for business in general. Sexual orientation is more like religion than race, which is obvious, and we don't go typically announce our religion during a job interview or day one when we start a new position. Yes there may be hints, like wearing a Jewish star or crucifix necklace. But I don't appreciate people waving their religious beliefs around the office - even while I uphold freedom of speech & religion. There's a time & place for political statements, and that's not during business hours.
Our private lives are private; just be yourself. I'm not suggesting hiding out in the closet - I just don't get the need to wave sexual preferences in everyone's face. Perhaps GLBT people might get more respect by just focusing on the work at hand so those not so accepting will feel more comfortable & maybe more inclined to tolerance when the truth reveals itself. Your friends & co-workers will learn whatever they need to know in due course as they get to know each other - otherwise as Billie Holiday would say "ain't nobody's business."…
cember 21, the Jewish holiday Hanukkah starts at sundown. I've always been curious about the many traditions found in the religion and I found a little checking on the Internet profoundly helpful! If you have information you'd like to share about your religious holidays, please do it here.
Hanukkah, also known as Chanukah, is an annual Jewish holiday, which lasts eight days and eight nights. Hanukkah begins each year on the twenty-fifth day in the Jewish month of Kislev and coincides with fluctuating dates in late November and December. In 2008, Hanukkah is from sundown on December 21 until sundown on December 29.
The Hanukkah Story
Nearly 2,200 years ago, the Greek-Syrian ruler Antiochus IV tried to force Greek culture upon peoples in his territory. Jews in Judea - now Israel- were forbidden their most important religious practices as well as study of the Torah. Although vastly outnumbered, religious Jews in the region took up arms to protect their community and their religion. Led by Mattathias the Hasmonean, and later his son Judah the Maccabee, the rebel armies became known as the Maccabees.
After three years of fighting, in the year 3597, or about 165 B.C.E., the Maccabees victoriously reclaimed the temple on Jerusalem's Mount Moriah. Next they prepared the temple for rededication -- in Hebrew, Hanukkah means "dedication." In the temple they found only enough purified oil to kindle the temple light for a single day. But miraculously, the light continued to burn for eight days.
