RT @SplendidSpoon #FF @patricksroberts & @marshsutherland for their lulzy twitter-fight with spammy/clueless recruiter.
I know my PR friends say I should be more positive in my ReferralBonus blog posts. But it’s so hard when the BS that recruiters continue to call “acceptable business practices” is nothing more than unwanted spam.
And Mike didn’t have the professionalism to check Patrick’s LinkedIn contact settings beforehand which indicate he’s not open to job opportunities.
Business is about relationships.
As Patrick had pointed out, if there had been a relationship he may have been open to hearing about a new opportunity.
But… Patrick is happy with his job at Iora Health. He’s thriving and growing and loves it there.
If one of Patrick’s friends had seen him as a match for a job at PatientsLikeMe through the ReferralBonus application, his friend never would have sent him the job because his friends know how much he loves it there.
