Here are a list of pet peeves I have while recruiting.

1.Musical voicemail-If I have to hear your demo tape, or how smooth you are, or hear a sermon i usually check out

2. When a candidate applies for the job, the recruiter calls him/her and the applicant acts like they can't be bothered

3. An applicant who leaves me a message with just their first name, no phone number and no reason to call them back

4. Creative email addresses..I once had a guy go off on me because I couldn't find him a to love working for an agency..., his email addy was

feel free to add you own..

5) Flame auto replys wondering why a CSR wasnt granted an interview for a Director job.

6) Applicants who apply to 85 jobs at once, and really arent qualified for any of them

7) People who have everything marked as "confidential" on their resume.

I could keep going. and going. and going. and going.

I hate when candidates lie. Typos too, I had a resume sent to me and first line read as follows " I am looking for position ass analog designer in dynamic...."

How about the " I am perfect for that role " candidate that can do " everything "
