I have been seeing interesting local contracts announced by recruiters from
anywhere but local. This seems to be getting more typical, where a recruiter
in Michigan or Florida or California contacts me about work 20 miles from my
door in Washington. What seems really odd is that they often do this a week
or more before any local recruiter has the job listed.

What is going on?? One local telecom employer I know uses a big staffing
provider with headquarters out east, and they fit this profile of contacting
me a week or two ahead of local recruiters.

At least 80% of the work I hear about between Portland Ore and Seattle WA is
announced first by distant agencies. I sometimes send a resume, rarely hear
anything more. Is this for real, that there is a big de-localization of
contract announcements going on?

So, I am noting a change. Does this ring any bells? Anybody?
