Today, I received this reply from a potential candidate. I am not sure if I should feel like a pain in the neck and/or a recruiting savant.  As long as there is strong alignment between his background and the Xtra Effort client need, I can feel good about the process … and hopefully the outcome.

Could this be a good lesson for enterprise sales teams too?

Mark – OK, in the face of relentless pursuit, I give in. No harm in learning more.

Please give me a call on 212 201- 1212. Please advise on number you are calling from, else I will likely not pick up.
