It does not provide much help to a candidate other than the obvious of increasing your networking and profile so you get "found".
There is also no discussion on how to bypass the recruiter and get to the hiring manager other than word of mouth.
There is limited mention of commission meaning that recruiters play a numbers game expecting a failure rate.
There is limited discussion on why the simple process of placing an advert no longer works - thinking about SEO and how real job adverts are drowned out by vague job advert noise and not visible on the jobs boards.
There is limited discussion on why candidates are prevented on finding out what the end employer is.
There is limited discussion on why recruiters cannot get exclusive paid for and non-commission based roles from companies.
There is patronizing stuff about candidates being desperate and not showing it.
There is stuff about manipulating interviews to your own advantage. If both the candidate and the interviewer people want to listen first so they can taylor their messages there will be no conversation.
There is no stuff about the lack of information about internal politics in the employer.
There is very limited evidence that Performance Based Hiring actually gets the right person. That's because there isn't any and the HR industry cannot substantiate its benefit outside the process of finding candidates.
My experience is that the recruiters are more desperate for their commission and will try any sales tactic to keep the process going. I am afraid this book proves that recruiters are the "enemy" and not the friend to to the candidate.
