(Redmond, WA - September 14, 2009) - Unemployed candidates are wondering why recruiters or hiring companies won't call them back. "It's possible that they've been blacklisted by those recruiters or companies," says career psychology expert Paul Anderson of ProLango Consulting. Hiring companies are using their customer relationship management (CRM) software to profile candidates: when they apply for positions, during informational interviews, phone screens, or details they find out about them online such as social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc). If candidates don't follow the unspoken rules of recruitment, they could land on the recruiter's blacklist. With the national unemployment rate averaging 9.7%, it's more important than ever that candidates know of such lists and take steps to avoid landing on them.

On September 21st, Paul Anderson will present "How to get off the recruiter's blacklist" at ProLango's next Career Mixer at Maggiano's Little Italy in Bellevue. While the event is free, registration is required at ( and seats fill up quickly as their last event was packed with over 400 registrants including hiring managers, candidates, and recruiters.
