Why I don't deal with technical recruiters any more
Let this article serve as a reference to my dislike of independent technical recruiters: Writers with Technical Background Needed or Not | Linux Journal.
I get phone calls about once every two months, usually from three different recruiters, repeating the exact same come-on. Give me a break!
With my next job search, I will simple ignore any independent recruiter that I do not personally know. They are a complete waste of time.
