I had to report a candidate for stalking
Tutti Recruitti caught up with David Adler who was made to feel distressed and scared due to unwanted behavior by a candidate;
"She was fixated, Call after call. Email after email. It was effecting my work-life and my home-life
All my job adverts clearly state;
'If you have not heard back within 2 weeks please assume you have been unsuccessful'
But that wouldn't stop her
I didn't contact her within the 2 week time frame. Therefore she was CLEARLY UNSUCCESSFUL. What is there not to understand?
I don't have time to contact every candidate that applies
2 weeks would pass and she would still be contacting me about roles she applied for 2 months ago
I was receiving 5 calls a day from her. It was horrible
Eventually I had no choice but to report her for stalking. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the West Midlands Police Force who were very understanding throughout
I have never spoken to my stalker. But if I did I would say;
I'm sorry that it had to come to this. If I had a positive update I would have contacted you within 2 weeks of application"
