Hi Michael,

Yeah, I can see how that would be annoying to you.  If you get a solicitation call at work that bugs you--tell them to buzz off.

I don't know that you ought to let it hurt your feelings or something, though.

In the world of business, it is reasonable to expect that head hunters are at all times seeking to hire your best and brightest out from under you--the way to stop them is by making it worth people's while to stick around.

To my knowledge, histotechnologists are, as a rule of thumb, over-worked and under-appreciated.

And yet they are darn handy to have around.

I suggest that you make it your personal mission to ensure that your histotechs ARE NOT looking for another job.  That way, when a recruiter calls, your techs say "Leave my current position?  What are you crazy??!!!"

> I Wanted to obtained opinions of Managers/Supervisors in the histo world and how you handle situations regarding recruiters calling directly into Pathology Labs to specific tech's and stating they are seeking referrals for job placements. I recently had an AP staffing solution company call one of my labs to talk to any "histologist"  I felt was to recruit staff.  I feel this is an unprofessional practice to call directly into the laboratory and to hide behind the wording "referrals" when actually it appears they are trying to get information from the tech on the phone seeing if they are looking for a "new job".  I feel that this is an intrusion as well as inappropriate in our line of business and we are not in the business to give referrals to companies in the staffing solution arena for their monetary gain as well as trying to entice  our staff. What the staff does with these types of companies on personal time is their business, however, I think it is offending for companies to demonstrate this behavior.  If anyone would like to know which company and person called into my lab I will personally inform you on private email!
