|<horse status=dead action=beat topic=sucky_recruiters>
My problem with all of those boards (Monster, Dice, HotJobs, etc.) is that the vast
majority of jobs listed are by recruiters. I used to think that by
going out of my way to be active rather than reactive in terms
of looking for a new job, I could avoid the need for having to
work with headhunters. But apparently most companies don't
even both to post their jobs, they just farm everything out
to the staffing agencies. (/me scratches his head trying
to think of a new synonym...)
Also, I've found that most of those site, especially HotJobs,
are spamhavens from hell. I've had my resume offline for months
and I still get stuff that came from there. Bleah.
