I’m just going to write this once, and point back to it in the future. If you are a recruiter representing an executive quietly looking for a new job, it probably isn’t the best idea to call and leave a voicemail with details on the person and asking for advice on which companies would be a good fit.

Yes, we probably have a good idea of who’s hiring and might be interested. But we’re also a blog and we quite publicly write about this stuff, usually before the executives have actually resigned or told anyone internally. And you just handed me a great story.
