If you're prepared to deal with recruitment agents, then you talk to me,
and I provide you with a list of agents who can:
a) Follow simple instructions, eg: "Do not call me between these times",
"Do not send me roles in the West Midlands for 1/3 my current
b) Actually match candidates that might be of some use to the spec they
c) Not try and sell you a pup just to make a buck
d) Actually behave like real human beings with whom technical people
might want to hang out / drink with once in a while
 Is it surprising that this is the only reliable indicator I've ever
found for whether recruiters are worth my time - WIDWTG? (Would I Drink
With This Guy). It may give false positives, but it's a start...
