Another good point. I worked with a recruiter some time ago on a tech
writer position. They set up an interview for me weeks in advance. The day
before the interview I got an email from the recruiter saying that the
interview had been moved to another date/time that was impossible for me to
make. When I asked for another time, I apparently was placed on the "Do Not
Do Business With" list. Although I can't prove that this list exists, I can
certainly explain the facts about what happened, and hope the reader reads
between the lines.

These are good points, but a lot of lists like the eBay and Amazon lists
only mention the poster's handle and not a full name. However, the comment
"a negative review of an employer can bite you back in a number of ways"
might have a ring of truth. There appear to be a recruiter or two that will
not work with me anymore. I don't really care (refer to my previous post
where I mentioned a bad recruiter), but some people might be bothered by
such things.


- And I sign my real name. Maybe I am shooting myself in the foot. But if
I am the best candidate for the job and the recruiter will pay me, then they
will probably place me because I might be the candidate that gets the job
and it is money in their pocket. If a recruiter does not want to pay me,
then they should know that I have taken 3 employers to the DLSE to get paid
and they might want to avoid being number 4. Mutual aversion in the latter
