Rickie Long replied to Robert Krzak's discussion 'Cient 'Stealing' Resumes'
"Nothing will stop someone from claiming something that is/was yours if they want to do so and can get away with it. But for honest folk making a mistake - try a large company watermark with a submittal date that covers 75% of the document.... I get…"

Rickie Long replied to Adam's discussion 'How to leave a great voice message...'

Rickie Long replied to Adam's discussion 'How to leave a great voice message...'
"I also leave voice messages as a prelude or follow up to an email - cuts down on the recipient's automatic delete instinct if I can pique their interest and they know who the email is from and what its about. Since I always ask for…"

Rickie Long commented on Sunil Kumar's blog post 'Few of the most valued attributes of Recruiters'

Rickie Long commented on Salih Mujcic's blog post 'Does cultural alignment equal increased organisational performance?'

Rickie Long commented on Drue De Angelis's blog post 'The Problem with Recruiters!'

Rickie Long commented on Glenna Halligan's blog post 'Interview Protocol 101'
"To clarify.  I do not think you should bring a bottle of water.  And if offered a beverage it is best to decline unless it is an all day interview.  In which case accepting a bottle of water is the best option."

Rickie Long commented on Glenna Halligan's blog post 'Interview Protocol 101'
"I agree that a suit may be too much, but I think the tie is necessary with a white or other light colored long sleeve dress shirt.  A jacket is not necessary.  Its acceptable to add a sweater in cold weather. Its is better to be…"

Rickie Long commented on Glenna Halligan's blog post 'Interview Protocol 101'
