How pushy should you be with a recruitment agent?
Is emailing them everyday creepily stalkerish? Or positively enthusiastic? Or just plain sensible?
I know that these guys get CVs after CVs, so - at the very least - these people will remember me as the crazily enthusiastic one. In fact, one of them called me today, to let me know that she was putting my CV forward for a job I’d been pushing for - Great news!
…It’s just, the balance between being enthusiastic and out-and-out obsessive can be a bit murky. I don’t usually talk to recruitment agents that much, but their die hard enthusiasm seems to be the only language they speak - so I’m trying to play them at their own game, which is difficult for me, because I’m a rather cantankerous sort of person. It all feels so relentlessly happy.
The main thing - the thing that is really vital - is getting a new job. My current one is plain dreadful, and I desperately need something a bit more challenging.
