Why You Should Use Recruiting During Your Next Job Search

I know recruiting gets a bad rap because there are places out there that don’t care, barely communicate with you, and some places even alter your resume just to get a win.

There are many things not to say to someone who’s unemployed, but I’m going to go over the few that rub me the wrong way the most.
