No, I’m not heading down to my local footie pitch with a whistle. I’ve been asked to do a reference for a friend of mine who is applying for a rather interesting job that I happen to think is right down his street. So how does one go about producing a blend of hightened sycophancy with just enough “critique” so they don’t think I’m whitewashing the guy?
Advice welcome. Tim, you’re a headhunter. What do you think?
