I contacted six recruiters in my recent job search.
Four of them disappeared after only a couple of days. As a friend likes to say, “For most of them, we’re just baubles. They forget about us once the shiny wears off.”
Two recruiters were head-and-shoulders above the rest. They got me into great interviews, stuck with me for the entire search, and were especially supportive during unfruitful periods. I highly recommend them for Seattle tech job seekers.
(One and two interviews don’t sound like much, but the savvy job seeker values quality over quantity. These prospective employers were spot on and the positions were beautiful. More on this in another blog post.)
