An article from Recruiting.com caught our eye recently, especially because it’s a subject that’s near and dear to us. In the article, they explain that from the outside, a recruiter’s job seems like it’s a piece of cake- you get a resume, call the right people and you get the person a job. But, there’s so much more to it than that. As they say in the piece:
“A great recruiter creates the conditions for that magic luck to strike. They don’t talk to a lot of different people. They talk to everyone. They don’t want to know their clients or their company’s competitors. They want to know everything that’s happening at every company in their area. It’s a massive amount of work…”
We can definitely vouch for that and we’re glad to see that someone else appreicates that.
What’s your experience with this? Are there any recruiters out there who hear the same thing about how you’re seen from the outside?
Please note these special plans that we have made because of the Northeast area storm.

Full-time employees are sometimes thought to be the most dedicated workers at a company but a new study that appears on ZDNet shows that might not be the case. According to Monash University in Australia, “the vast majority of contractors’ attitudes showed that they were committed to their clients and perceive themselves as productive contributors.” Needless to say, we at Mitchell Martin have long valued contracted workers and we’re glad to see that they’re getting credit for all of the hard work that they do every day.
Could health-related phone apps replace doctors? Marie Romano, Mitchell Martin’s Vice President of Clinical Business Development, comments on this recent article in Gigaom about the subject.
She does use some of the apps herself. “I have the BMI App which tracks weight, goal, and body mass index.” But she also cautions about the limits of medical apps. “Your personal MD or health professional has a history of prior and/or family medical conditions that may cause he/she to limit or restrict specific foods, diets, vitamins or activities.”
