Asking for Recruiters for Feedback

David: While you were recruiting, how did you feel about candidates asking you for feedback on their performance?

I do not mind if candidates ask me for feedback. However, many recruiters are instructed by their legal departments not to give specific feedback to candidates, so do not be surprised if your yield from such inquires is not very high.

Try focusing your requests to address additional skills or experiences which would make you more attractive, as opposed to soliciting direct feedback of why you did not make the cut. You may get a better response.
