I don't agree. When I did a stint in Seattle (before technical writing), I worked with about 6 recruiters. I put in everything I could to work with them--I really needed a job. One was good, but like the rest, even he wouldn't return my calls unless I called. I think it's hit or miss.

From what I understand, recruiting as a profession is difficult, and so the recruiters cut corners, as we have seen in the amsuing horror stories posted.

Just be careful and don't ever completely trust a recruiter (Unless you're Bruce, in which case you have everey reason to trust them.)
