1.     Get to the point. Today. I have other people to interview.
2.     As lovely as the 3 packs of cigarettes you smoked today smells on you, I think it’s time to wrap up this conversation.
3.     If your resume was any longer, you could subtitle it “War and Peace, part 2” and get a publisher to print it out
4.     Sorry you don’t want to drive more than .3 miles outside your door but I don’t have active job listings inside your subdivision.
5.     If I don’t pick up the phone the first time you call, leave a message. That’s what voice mail is for. Restraining orders are quite time consuming and I can’t believe you just called 18 times in a row. while I was wrapping up a call with a potential client because you don’t have 5 seconds of patience. I don’t want to work with you anymore.

Jessica, this is so very true and I hope your potential clients really take this to heart. As a professional recruiter myself, these ARE the things that make a huge impact, although they seem small. It's the little things that will differentiate candidates, especially with the job market the way it is.....we have the pick of the litter so make yourself stand out, in a good way!
