Have you ever seen “H1B’s and Non-Green Card holders wanted” in an ad? I have not but what I have seen is the opposite being stated. What I usually see is an ad that states the “right candidate must be a US citizen or Green Card holder” yet people who do not have this status still send their resumes.
Can you tell me why? Has anyone with an H1B ever gotten a job they applied for when the ad specifically states no sponsoring??
They then get pissed off when you do not respond to them with an email. Is it really my job to respond to someone who sends me their resume when they clearly do not qualify? That’s like applying for an accounting position when you’re experience is in landscaping!
Let’s say we are working with a client who tells us that there is no relocation money for the position. We will then put that information in our ad that goes out to various job boards. A potential candidate applies for this position and happens to live in another state. As a recruiter, you tend to assume that they read the part where there is NO RELO. During the first conversation we have with this potential candidate we discuss the fact that they would have to move for this role and more times than not they tell you that they need relocation money. This does not have anything to do with negotiating; this really is about being stupid! As a recruiter I’m about bringing two sides together and creating a happy scenario, which is how we get repeat business. We try our best to find talent within the parameters of our clients’ needs. What we don’t do is disregard our client’s needs and throw anyone at them. That would be like showing them a great candidate that happens to have died six years earlier.
My question is:
A) Do people really take the time to read a job ad?
B) Do they just forward their resumes off to any job ad?
C) Are they just arrogant enough to think that they have what no one else has and therefore things like Citizenship and relocation money does not apply to them?
D) None of the above.
