I would have to say that in many cases the requirements on those recruitment lists seem insane. A digital MacGyver indeed! Having dealt with all too many recruiters, I can say that my experience is that they know next to nothing about technology and will often 'get it wrong' from client to potential prospect. Also I find their high pressure tactics distasteful. They actually try to get you to quit your job for some fly in the pan possibility that may end in a dot bomb. I believe that they make a commission on each hire so their incentive is to get you to switch jobs as often as possible. They don't care about you. They just care about their sales figures.
