I'm definitely in the job hunting market (not sure if that's the correct way to put it or not), but I've got a question/issue with recruiters. (I hope that on this forum I'm speaking more to my colleagues than to recruiters.)

Whenever I deal with recruiters I always get the same line, "I've got several contract positions available." Maybe 3 months. Maybe 6. None better than that. Some offer contract to hire positions, but given my family situation I really need full-time, permanent. I need benefits from day 1 or at the very least within a month or so of starting. The other thing that really irritates me about recruiters is what I call a used car salesman approach. Most of the time it's "Make a decision now!", "Can you interview in NYC tomorrow?" (I live in the southwest.). Or the worst was, "If you vacillate on a position I send you're way, then you're only building a reputation as a difficult person to work with. No other recruiters will want to have anything to do with you." Personally, I hate these kind of treatments, especially the last one. I can't speak for all of you, but I'm the type of person who needs to weigh all of the options, learn as much as I can about a position (and company and the other co-workers), think about it (and yes, even pray about it), until I reach a reasoned conclusion. No, I won't take months, but yes I will take longer than 1 day. Probably a few days, maybe even a week.

Those of you who are also in the job market, can you tell me, is this the way it is with recruiters?


Kindest Regards,

Rod
