Now You’re Some Recruiter That I Used to Know

Have you ever been addicted to a certain recruiter (who gives you a pen)?

Are you a recruiter working on commission who has picked up a candidate who doesn’t want to leave their job?

This Gotye parody from the Auckland Lawyers Revue may relate to you – let us know if it does in the comments below!

Sing along:

Now and then I think of when you first called my number
And when you said you had a job that I should try
Asked myself if you were right for me
But you said that we should have coffee
And from that day you showered me with lots of attention

You can get addicted to a certain kind of recruiter
Like one who gives you a pen, always a pen
I thought it meant it was a sign of lust
But you were just trying to gain my trust
And then I found that you were working on commission

Now and then I think of all the times you strung me on
Part of me believing you were just about to leave your job
But I don’t really work that way
If you don’t take the job — I don’t get paid
You said that you were ready to go
But you never quit, so I’m just some recruiter that you used to know (-oh-oh)
