It’s round two! Cory Berg, an esteemed colleague and trusted friend, goes head to head with me in this LinkedIn Live series we did a while back, and we had to share it with you in podcast form.
Now, if you haven’t heard round one, I highly suggest that you listen to it by clicking here.
We have some laughs while going head to head – me, Allen Plunkett, as the recruiter, and Cory Berg as the engineer.
We discuss when it’s appropriate to give references, and contact references. From a recruiter’s perspective, doesn’t it make sense to reach out to references early so you can have a good idea of the person you’re trying to selling to a company? Or as an engineer, do you worry about having a recruiter bothering your references, or worse, trying to pitch those managers with their recruiting services?
We get into all of it in this fun, spirited conversation. Enjoy!
