Is anyone else having non-response issues from MRI (Management Recruiters International) Network, Inc. upon sumbitting a resume? They claim to be one of the largerst global employment recruiting firms. I don't doubt they are. However, on their home website, they claim "excellence is easy when you master the art". Upon entering the site, there is nice option to find a recruiter who specializes in a given industry. After entering information to "find your recruiter", multiple names and contact information appear whom you can choose to make contact. This indeed is a simple and appealing manner in which to find the tailored recruiter needed. Unfortunately, this recruiter finder falls far below expectations.
Upon my entry of information to select the right recruiter, no less than 25 names were listed. However, to date I have emailed my resume and interest/background information to a dozen or more of the named recruiters with not as much as a response acknowledging my correspondence for over two weeks from any of them. Although with the current economic situation in the country, I realize recruiters may be stretch, but it is not as if I only have a high school education and am seeking some high level position. In fact, I hold a M.S. degree in my field with over twenty years of experience.
Perhaps I share a hint of frustration many feel with the current job market that has influenced my disposition re: MRI Network. My expectation is not to get a flood of interview offers; rather, a simple gesture of email acknowledgement is not too much to ask, is it? The lack of professionalism by not responding to an interested potential candidate is very disconcerning to me from one of the worlds largest recruiting firms. Any thoughts???
