I'm a headhunter or recruiter, looking to find someone for a position involving web dev


We could do with more hands!

  • How do I find someone?

Well, I found this one guy.

  • Who is this? Do they appear to be in the same business?

Seems like the right sort, but...

  • I need someone who can do X and Y while learning Z, is that you?

Sure. You claim lots of things.

  • What kind of evidence do you have?

That's all fine, but we hire based on cultural fit.

  • What do you value?
  • Are you fun to work with?

Eh, could be worth a try.

  • Can I press a button to summon you?
