Emily Tan from Formative Search - This woman will literally harass you lmao. If you turn down a role, she will keep asking you WHY WHY WHY and ask if you can intro any friends who might be interested. Sometimes she even pretends as if she had mandate from the firm/company to act and search for a candidate. Anyhow max.

Sophie de Blauwe from Taylor Root - Will chat you up and get you hyped for a role, then ghost you. I heard her strategy is she lines up several candidates and sends the weaker ones in first to suss out the interviewers/what kind of questions would they ask/etc to prep her stronger ones later.

Melvin Ling from Hudson - I only learnt about this guy because he randomly cold called me on my office phone without even reaching out to me on LinkedIn first. Spoke to him for 5 mins and felt damn tired, clearly doesn't even know what he's doing or what the legal industry is about.

Awaiz Iqbal from Interlink Recruitment - OMG AVOID THIS GUY. Just like Emily, he anyhow pretend he has mandates and will randomly splice together random partner profiles to cobble up a JD for you. He once asked my friend whether she was interested in a role with XYZ department in my firm, which didn't even exist so I asked to see the JD - lo and behold, he just anyhow threw a few partners (from entirely different depts) and claimed they were hiring for that specific dept lol.

Lucy Kennerley from Leap29 - She will be very nice to you if she needs your profile/cv but when you try to ask her about roles she's posted, she'll be damn cold to you and say they not hiring for your profile lol.

Eng Chang from Space Exec - Talk a lot but clearly doesn't know what he's talking about, has a throw **** until it sticks method i.e. he will spam you with roles or talk you up about them when you're clearly unsuitable.
Hear Hear! Agree with all of the above. Adding my experience:

Dhvani Doshi from Hays - Told me about a role and when I asked about the hiring partner, send me random partner's profile that clearly does different area of work. Also bluff me about the salary and said confirm higher than where I am. I gave her a fake high figure to test her and she still say yes that place will pay more...

Kate Chang from Recruit Legal - Can totally ghost you after putting you the application.

Emily Tan from Formative Search - Never spoke before. I do see her posts on LinkedIn from time to time. One fine day, out of the blue, she LinkedIn message me to ask if I got friends from XYZ practice group (and I am from ABC practice group).

Many more....

We should really band together and put out comments out there (for better or worse). Its like at work we are client's dog, then when we are the client, we also kena treated like dog. Not sure why all recruiters all think we are stupid.

Any interest in a dedicated thread or online compendium?
