As I am finding out, recruiting agencies are not always particular with how
they use your resume/CV. Finding a job is not easy. I notice that some
reruiters specialize in tech writers, and others are more generalist. All
seem to be region-specific. I'm not sure to what degree they go to bat for
any one candidate, nor am I sure of the fees they receive.

How does one go about finding a good, solid, recruiter/head hunter?
Thoughts? Suggestions?

Too bad about leaving Gibraltar . . . did they ever get that sub out of
there? <vbg>
