Career fair

If you’re at a career fair, what would you rather hear from a recruiter?

Five minutes of facts and diplomatic BS about the position and company despite the recruiter knowing immediately it’s not a good fit and you have zero chance to even get an interview simply because of something she saw on your resume you just handed them?

Or, the truth. And perhaps, five minutes of genuine, free career counseling.

Well, I certainly had no interest in delivering or receiving the former.

But that’ probably why I write something like the latter, here, every day.
