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?
