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

"Paul always makes my life a little easier. He does the paperwork that we managers don't like to do! He sifts through the 'junk'. Most of the people he gives me I would actually hire. Paul makes the choice hard, but he makes the process very easy."
