Product Description

About the Author

Herbie Henderson lives in London with her delectable husband and her genius dog Harry. With a head packed full of insider knowledge (thanks to her experience as a recruitment consultant) Herbie set about creating this How to Handle. She knew just how slippery and sloppy some of her competitors could be, and how notoriously difficult they were to handle. She also knew that a lot of candidates out there had reached breaking or boiling point with their consultants. So she got to work interrogating competitors, colleagues, candidates and frankly anyone & everyone relevant; toiling tirelessly to unearth the best kept secrets (and some of the lousy consultants regrettably unsavoury practices) so you now you can discover... How to Handle Your Recruitment Consultant... with phenomenal results. (Note: Despite having explored the underbelly of recruitment Herbie would like to state for the record that all the agencies she has ever worked with have impeccable working practices, professional & perfect consultants, brilliant & brainy candidates and delicious & adorable clients!)

Format: Paperback
I have worked within the recruitment industry for 16 years and this book collectively demonstrates what good consultants SHOULD be offering the job hunter at each stage of the game !! This book is not only an invaluable read for the discerning person who is seeking employment, but also it could teach consultants a thing or two!! There are many agencies out there and some are complete sharks - clearly the one that I work for (who shall remain nameless) is not and although this book demonstrated to me that I am doing my job correctly, it is probably more aimed at the general high street consultants who think that its ok to put people into 'bums on seats jobs'.

This book will be a wake up call for these mediocre consultants and will show them that to get the best out of any candidate who is seeking work, you need to put the hard graft in and in a very professional way look after them. I would highly recommend this book to both recruitment professionals and jobhunters alike and I will be ensuring that all of my team read it.

This is a no-nonsense guide that lifts the lid on the seemingly murky world of Recruitment Consultants. I really valued this book. Since reading it my career transition has become a lot more fun. Gone are the creepy nervous feelings of dread when having to call recruitment consultants and afterI read this book I have since struck up really positive relationships with recruitment consultants. It is well written in an informal 'chatty' style. Good value.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book. As a University tutor students often ask me for advice on job hunting. I am now recommending this book as one of the key books for my students. It is written in an easy to read format, with practical advice and examples that everyone can relate to, and put into practice.

The most useful fact is that it is written by someone who has worked within recruitment and not simply as a careers advisor etc. For years I've been frustrated by books that just don't tackle the real issues even if they are basic and obvious to some people, they are so often overlooked by the undergraduates and graduates I work with and have tried to help. This book tells people why to do certain things and not others, what to write, how to communicate and what to do to stay on top of your job search.

Whenever I talk to my students about job searching I direct them to How to Handle Your Recruitment Consultant. With so many people searching for jobs and with so many of those jobs being handled by recruitment consultants I want my students to have the edge over their competitors and I believe this book gives them that edge.

My own copy is constantly on loan to students and is well worn after just a few weeks of ownership which is high praise indeed when you bear in mind that many of these same students rarely even appear to read to the end of their subjects' reading lists let alone books!

Format: Paperback
Really excellent book. Had read a v positive review in weekend newspaper which is why I bought it. Am very pleased I did; it covered all the areas I hoped it would plus much much more. Herbie Henderson writes well - she is amusing and engaging, a very nice style. The book doesn't try to be anything it's not, just gets on with dealing what it promises to deal with in the title, and doesn't waste time with filler and waffle (which I personally find some books in this area tend to do). Extremely handy book. It has been incredibly useful to have the inside track on what actually goes on inside recruitment consultancies, and to know how to get them to do what I want. Really great book - and vital for a job search.

It's tough getting a job these days so understanding how the world of recruitment works from an insider point of view helps. This was a fun but very informative read.
