The interview process with Duval was extremely quick and the response / outcome is always quick.
I cannot say I was met with any form of professionalism throughout the process and that the information I provided was unnecessarily questioned on 2 occasions, not forgetting the mentioning of self-confidence. I thought the whole point of a recruiter contacting you was to get to know you and your aims in what you're specifically looking for in a new job, not become personal and put you down but there we are.
I'm a professional human being who has had many years in successfully preparing and conducting myself pre-interview, post interview and ultimately secured roles. To be met with a passive aggressive email of supposed bullet pointed 'interview tips' an evening before said interview - for example I don't think 'play the game' and 'don't bad mouth your current company' was received all too well. I'm not fresh out of college needing to know the simple basics either. Not to mention during this process of the potential violation of privacy in my job hunt.
I think it very much depends on the members of Duval you'd be dealing with here and not tarnishing all members with the same brush, as there are some very successful reviews in other cases.
It's a small warning that this experience alone can ring alarm bells on a candidate's side to what is already a stressful experience is unnecessarily being made more stressful. Not to mention the age old rule of, it takes one bad experience with a company for you to never return.
Edit: I wouldn't say the above is vague, it's feedback direct from a candidate to you as the recruiter for you to note and ensure that going forwards professionalism and thought in choice of words and manner is just as important and duly noted by the candidate at all times.
