Swimming with sharks – a new Job order, that every remaining recruiter seems to have

scottbivium-logo-finalYipee! A new job order possibly developing!!  But wait, is this something unique, special or perhaps even ‘off the radar’? How does a recruiter differentiate themselves from their competitors when recruiting possible candidates?

Well, in the case of a recent job at a company I’ll call “itest” – you tell 2 of the largest, loudest recruiting firms out there – Hollister, Winter, Wyman, and then have all three parties including “itest” post the job on Craigslist within hours of each other:

http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/sof/1091545726.html – Hollister – nice cut & paste job folks.

http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/sof/1090645230.html – Winter, Wyman, well at least the job desc is re-written

http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/sof/1090425704.html – no name given, so perhaps it’s “itest” themselves.

Of couse if you “think like a recruiter” and do a quick couple boolean searches, it’s pretty obvious who this is!! And the award for “Tool of the Week” goes to ____ …. so, if you’ve got some Flex, Java, and you’re a  metrowest software engineer, here’s a nice, easy job lead to figure out for yourself without using a recruiter. Now, if you’re “itest”, perhaps next time you rethink your recruiting partner strategy.
