Sleazy Recruiters

Look at this job ad as seen on a popular developer web site:

Well-Respected Consulting Firm, huh? Then why isn’t the well respected firm’s name in the ad? Hrmmmm?

And of course they need “brilliant” developers. No other kind will do, but knowing SQL is a plus, you see.

This is obviously a recruiter-posted ad, to which I say, “ARRRGGGHH!” If you’re looking for a job, try a board like the recruiter unfriendly jobs.joelonsoftware.com, where job ads can’t be posted at all without listing the hiring company’s name.

[And by the way, I’m perfectly satisfied in my current employment – I just spotted this ad on a web site and couldn’t resist commenting.]
