I got an email from one of my recruiters today, letting me know that she's leaving the company and giving me information for my new contact there.
The shocking part of this is actually that she told me at all; this is the first time a recruiter's been kind enough to let me know. And yet, it's far from the first time this has happened to me.
The funniest were the couple where a recruiter had contacted me and I turned them down... then a few months later I'd get an email from a new recruiter saying "hey, I took over so-and-so's accounts and are you still interested?" I tried not to laugh and say, "still interested? I was never interested!" since it's hardly the new person's fault if the outgoing recruiter didn't have complete records.
I digress, but the point is that this was a really considerate thing to do, and beats finding out when some new person starts contacting me, my mail starts bouncing or, even worse, suddenly all my mails vanish into the abyss and I don't know why. Plus I feel reassured that the new recruiter will have my info and we can continue where the last left off.
I wish I could thank my original recruiter, but her email account there is now closed, and I'm guessing it's too creepy to look her up elsewhere or put her name in this post. But I wish her the best of luck wherever she's going next, and I'm glad to have had such a considerate recruiter this time around -- this is just one example of the things she did to make sure my interview experience was good, and I appreciate it.
