Just to prove that there are exceptions:

I may be the only person on the list who got an excellent job writing APIs and product documentation for a serious startup through a Craigslist posting.

The recruiter fit some of the stereotypes you mention, as she was Indian and had a few facts wrong. She put me forward for this dream job, and stayed out of the way until the company was sure they wanted me.

True this was six or seven years ago, so things may have gotten much worse in the interim. And I was a slam dunk fit for the job and the company.
