Call us yourself!

If your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, sister/brother, cousin or any other SO (significant other) needs a job don’t, call a search firm for them. At Ankenbrandt we are happy to give advice, coach you a bit and lead you in the right direction but call us yourself.

If you’re looking for a management job you should be able to pick up the phone and call me, shoot me an articulate email and do a Google search on job hunting - yourself.

Attention all you well-meaning spouses, siblings, and cousins don’t “help” by phoning us. These people are not children. You calling us for them diminishes them in our eyes. If they can’t handle a phone call or make time to chat with us, how are they able to get a job done? How are they going to find time to interview? It sets up a bad first impression. Stop “helping” and let them do it themselves!
