Just a quick note about how NOT to get an HR Director to work with you. Send an email like this:

"Most recruiters who were calling you last year are no longer around; but you, the hiring manger, and I, a recruiter, are survivors and still here! I would love to take 20 minutes of your time to learn about how I can recruit FOR you rather than FROM you."

Don't threaten that if I dont work with you, that you'll recruit from me. To me that's just a challenge. Bring it.

it continues to amaze me how some recruiters act like low life thugs trying to hustle employers for protection money. Good for you for not falling to these fake itimidation tactics.

Ragan, the original email BEGS to be the focal point of an RBC discussion - Recruiting's Contribution to the Darwin Awards. Listen to your VM and call me when you have a moment.

Ok ok - here's the original email:

Hi there Ragan!


Most recruiters who were calling you last year are no longer around; but you, the hiring manger, and I, a recruiter, are survivors and still here! I would love to take 20 minutes of your time to learn about how I can recruit FOR you rather than FROM you.

Please let me know if you are available Monday the 27th of April, 2009 for 20 minutes between 11am and 3pm.

Look forward to your response

Warm regards,


Tracy Diomande
Recruitment Consultant
