Subject: Obtaining contracts

All of these jobs were obtained through sites like Dice and, subsequently,

that the recruiter is getting a cut of the money that the client company is
Before I landed a job with a large company, I contacted them directly.
They're IT Hiring Manager acted as if I had peeked behind the curtain to
look at the great Oz. She insisted that I go through a recruiter.
