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 really understood the specific engineering talent we were looking for. They dug deep and came up with a handful of perfect candidates---they are selective in who they present and they don't waste your time. I had been trying to find someone with deep experience in the lighting industry for a long time without success until I talked with Mary and Paul."
