The Breakable Process and "Executive Recruiters: Good, Bad … or Evil?"

I just finished reading a post entitled "Executive Recruiters: Good, Bad … or Evil?"
In this story, the author, Steve Tobak, gives 2 glaring examples of where Executive Recruiters can go wrong. (SEE: 1.) Stonewalled and 2.) Blindsided at:  http://bit.ly/ExecutiveRecruitersGoodBadEvil )
 
In the process of reading his article, I remembered that the recruitment process can get broken not just by Executive Recruiters but, rather, in at least three places by at least three sets of people:
  • 1.) the applicant, 
  • 2.) the recruiter, and 
  • 3.) the hiring manager
After more than 20 years of recruitment experience, I can safely state the following three facts which I've personally observed:
  • 1. Applicants DO make mistakes which can cost them a job
  • 2. Recruiters DO make mistakes which can cost an applicant a job and a company an invaluable employees AND
  • 3. Hiring Managers DO make mistakes which cost an applicant a job, a recruiter a paycheck, and a company an invaluable employee
Though we rarely hear about Numbers 3, ALL experienced Recruiters have stories about EACH of the above three categories.
  1. ALL Recruiters know of non-responsive applicants.
  2. ALL Recruiters know of other non-responsive Recruiters and 
  3. ALL Recruiters know of non-responsive client companies.
 
So, is the Recruiter ALWAYS to blame when a hire isn't made? 
Or is incumbent upon all involved in the recruitment process to remember that it is "a breakable process" - breakable by more than one person?
.
Thanks, and Keep STRONG!!
