Recruiters: can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em (well....)

I typically frequent jg's jobster blog more than the average-joe, but I needed a prompting today from Heather. Thanks for the reminder.

Good post highlighting Peter Weddle's insight in to the world of recruiting.

Here's Peter's four factors for "figuring out recruiters:" (can it really be done?)

Factor #1: Recruiters are not experts in your occupation or profession.

Factor #2: Most recruiters listened to their mother.

Factor #3: Most recruiters are not intentionally rude or unpleasant to work with.

Factor #4: Recruiters are not responsible for job seekers’ success.

Hmmm...what'cha think, recruiters? Does Weddle nail it down pretty well?

Job-seekers...any thoughts?

It's worth the full read - go for it
