As I suspected, the previous blog and controversy was valuable only as a philosophical exercise. The guy didn’t get the offer. We were in a good position if he had received and accepted one but I am left with a distinct urge to go work on a better deal. The whole thing reminded me of earlier days working in firms that had 15 and 20 recruiters in a given market…All the breath that was wasted by all those people arguing about stuff that never would happen… What fun!!
Dave Staats places top executives as well as implementation consultants with software companies. He also has made more placements in Artificial Intelligence than any other headhunter. His career began during the SDI (Star Wars) years and included placement of scientists in laser, stealth, and other high-tech fields. During a short hiatus from the recruiting industry in 1994 he obtained a Private Investigator's license which he keeps as a constant reminder that a headhunter is what he really is. Dave is on the Board of Directors of The Pinnacle Society and a founder of The Tennessee Recruiters Association. He has a BA from Western Illinois University. Dave also blogs at Truth, Justice & the American Way of HeadhuntingAuthor Archive
