I think this is bad advice for a couple of reasons (and this is just a general note for interested persons, since Michelle is not going to go down this road herself).

If a company gives a posting to multiple recruiters, they don't want to see the same resume from more than one recruiting company. The company will refuse to consider you because they consider you to be rate shopping. And, if the recruiter finds out that you found out about the job through them but then got it via other means, including directly, there could be consequences.

There is much more about this in the archives.

So just bypass the recruiter. If you know your local market well it
shouldn't be too hard to identify the client, network your way in
directly, and get the job. It would be much sweeter to call the AR's
boss and complain *after* you get the job.

Also, see if this job is available via some other agency. It's common
these days for companies to hand out their job reqs to multiple
