January Is 'Be Nice to a Recruiter Month'
So I was on one of those blogs I tend to frequent -- Technical Careers @ Microsoft. I don't consider my career to be technical, really. Sure, I use computers, but I don't have too much knowledge about them or their programs' inner workings. But this blog is about careers, and I love their picture of a kitty in a Corona box. It's just like the picture on my desk of my cat in a Cider Jack box.
The other day, just to the right of the kitty picture, there was a declaration of how January should be Be Nice to a Recruiter month. That sounds good to me, and it should sound good to you, too.
If a recruiter ever calls you, whether it's because he saw your resume or someone referred you, why wouldn't you be polite? Even if you have no interest in the job he's calling about, someday this recruiter might have a position that would be right for you. So do your best to be helpful and leave a good impression.
Although Jason at Recruiting.com doesn't totally agree. Saying that people who normally wouldn't be nice deciding to be nice "would probably confuse the issue" rather than help.
In the spirit of the month, check out these articles about working with recruiters:

That's my cat Andi in the Corona box. She's quite the scary little one. :)
