Recruiter terms for Job Seekers
Filed under: Recruiters
Posted by: site admin @ 2:56 pm

Sarah Needleman listed several terms in an article that reveal what
you and I, job-seekers, are called under various circumstances.  In
“A job-hunter’s guide to recruiters’ code-words”
http://www.careerjournal.com/jobhunting/interviewing/20060509-needleman.html
you will learn that:

WD is a “working description” or a perfect match for a position,
mortician is someone who’s appearance is dated or drab,
“purple squirrel” is an ideal candidate.

Does anyone have terms not mentioned here that they can share?

Dan
