Most of the recruiters who have contacted me are just rude. You blast out mass emailings like a shotgun hoping to hit anyone. You've never even taken the time to read my resume. The fact that I respond is more important than whether I'm qualified, because you're more interested in making a quota than getting me a job. You dangle the promise of getting me an interview with a hiring manager, when in fact, that hiring manager doesn't know you any more than he knows me. You want me to spend time to change my resume, or take 3 hours of my time to come in so you can see me in person and make a snap judgement. In the end, I won't hear from you again until the next time you need a warm body. You hope to get me hired as a temporary, because when I prove myself and the client wants to hire me permanently, you'll receive a big fat percentage. Unfortunately, your rates are too steep and I'll most likely not get a permanent offer because of that. I've wasted enough time. If you're a recruiter, don't contact me. Period.
