I make candidates speak to me for 1 hour before disclosing salary
After being publicly shamed on LinkedIn, Big 4 Recruitment Agency Consultant Tu Long spoke to Tutti Recruitti;
"At the end of the day salary is not the most important thing. In my list of priorities it is right at the bottom, as it should be yours
Some of my happiest compliant candidates have taken 50% pay cuts. I sell the role to them so well, paint such an amazing future picture, that salary no longer matters
Don't be an arse and ask me for the salary when I have just called you unexpectedly. Hear me out. Let me sell you the dream. Let me analyse your suitability
No company wants a candidate who places such importance on money. Therefore if you show this devilish desire, because they don't want you, I don't want you
Be relaxed, listen and chat for 1 hour and all will be rosey
After all in my experience all companies will offer a fair salary and will never undercut you"
