Yep, This Sounds Pretty Familiar

A frustrated job seeker left a lovely rant in our sister blog AgencySpy’s anonymous tips box. It is directed at the ad industry as a whole and rails against how hiring managers treat candidates like dirt. “Things shake around really fast in this business, and the creative you’re treating like garbage today might be a highly desirable candidate in a couple of years. Don’t you want to have a positive relationship developed?”

Thing is, this kind of treatment isn’t unique to the ad industry at all. Whether it’s a recruiter making fun of a candidates’ hometown or just lies hiring managers tell their candidates, it’s a buyer’s market. That makes life tough for everyone—the jobseekers now, and the companies later when the market improves and word’s gotten around how companies treat their candidates.
