Our company is currently looking for a Western Regional Manager and I recently received a couple of a resumes from a recruiter that I’ve never heard of. He claims his company specializes only in lighting and electrical, but I hadn’t asked him to send me any resumes and I don’t think I’ve ever even spoken with him.     ---National Sales Manager, residential lighting manufacturer

Paul::  I can’t speak from a legal perspective, but I can say that most executive recruiters will never send you an unsolicited resume.  There are some firms that I call ‘resume houses’ that will regularly (or occasionally) send unsolicited resumes to employers, but we’d recommend you e-mail the recruiter and just request they no longer send a resume to you without your prior authorization.  True search firms will never send an unsolicited resume to you.

Testimonials

“The Pompeo Group is my go-to for talent in the lighting industry. Paul and his team are the consummate professionals---capable, confident, and, most important---discreet.  Paul helped me win my current position as Senior VP Channel Sales. I have worked and networked with other recruiters over my long career and The Pompeo Group has always been a leader. They have a vast network and can quickly get you through the process of hiring. TPG was my advocate! I was represented well, and the communication was outstanding. I always knew where I stood and what options were available. When anyone in my network is looking for an opportunity to advance their career, I send them to Paul. Great job, thanks!”
