Being a job candidate is excruciatingly boring. Hiring processes have become assembly lines and recruiters have become factory workers.
Taking the time to ask the right questions has been thrown out the window—if it was ever in the room, to begin with.
Thoughtfulness, respect for time, and genuine curiosity have been replaced with speed, form, and scale.
I get it, you’re on a timeline. Your success is directly tied to butts in seats. But being curious makes you different. And different equals memorable.
In a sea of sameness, optimizing for memorable seems like a smart strategy.
Reminder: Nathan Jefferson and I talk about this stuff every week on our pod. No agenda. No talking points. We just record and let it fly—unfiltered. Check out The Content Recruiter. We’re 11 episodes in. New episodes are released on Monday's.
