Call Yourself A Recruiter?

So. Call yourself a recruiter? I don't mean that in a sneering or belligerent way, no suggestion that I'm looking down my nose at your recruitment expertise (or lack thereof). No. I'm just rephrasing a question that caught my attention on LinkedIn earlier this week, a question posed by a…
