LinkedIn Talent Article – 5 things recruiters do that drive candidates crazy

Saw this posting today from the LinkedIn Talent Blog, Author Paul Petrone. I think it rings true for a lot of people. From the recruiter standpoint, unfortunately we have some trouble getting information from clients in a timely manner or they will just say “we pass” on a candidate and will not give specifics on why.
