      I have been working at Smith Hanley Associates

      Pros

      Contact with recruiter while "top candidate for position"

      Cons

      Was not selected for position with a client they where recruiting for. New opportunity-no response with new job posting after several emails. No review of material presented at interview, this allowed no support to "per interview" questions... No prep from recruiter that was so excited about my fit with this top company

      Advice to Management

      Make sure recruiters Are preping clients, reviewing material and if they are no selected, that doesn't mean the client should should be no longer qualified for future positions and not even communicates with when asking about a different posting. Feels like recruiter didn't make money on my hire so now just not good enough at all for anything
