Do good technical recruiters exist? If so, how would you find one?
My husband is job hunting and has 20 years of various types of engineering experience. (Electrical, mechanical and computer.) Any time he gets a call from a recruiter regarding his resume’, they say they have great jobs for him, but they’re almost always entry level or jobs in areas where he has no experience.
I know these recruiters have quotas to make, but I feel that they are wasting his time when they call. It has gotten a frustration point and he doesn’t return phone calls from them.
He is not a networking type of person, so he doesn’t really have anyone to ask about these things.
Jellies that are experienced, seasoned workers, have you had any success using a recruiting firm? If so, how did you find them?
