It has become a comodity where skilled contractors are simply a means to their paycheck. The personal side of recruiting seems to have disappeared only to be replaced with a callus high pressure sales technique previously reserved for used car lots.
Recruiters and contractors form a symbiotic relationship to serve our clients. One cannot live without the other. We must work together to maintain our respective incomes.
I propose that there is a huge opportunity for a recruiting company that is transparent and provides a service instead of just jamming resumes into clients inboxes praying that one will hit.
Maybe it is time for a contractor co-op. Or maybe contractors need agents instead of Recruiters.
