What people are saying about Oliver James

A headhunter from Oliver James reached out on LinkedIn. I said let's chat and we moved into scheduling. He didn't call at our agreed time. And didn't message me after to fix another. I reached out to him a couple days later asking if he's still interested. He said yes and we scheduled more time for that day, since he was out on leave after. Yet again, no call and haven't heard from him after. How does it feel to be so unprofessional at your job? Why reach out if you can't be arsed to call?

Just had an odd recruiter call and can’t decide if this is in my head or not… Initial call with recruiter at Oliver James for a role they’re trying to fill for a “client.” He was vague about the role, but it was a step up. He only asked questions to me about what I’m looking for in a future employer, what comp I want, and then asked about what my team would do if someone were to “hypothetically leave my team.” That’s when my spidey senses kicked in. Was this low key espionage? Did I get played?

Has anyone had success using a recruiter for a claims related job? I always hear from recruiters at Oliver James and PRG and Jonus and I’m not sure what it is but the jobs they contact me for, the salaries are half of what I make. I’ve heard that a great recruiter can be a godsend. Who is the best recruiter for a claims professional?
