Stay tuned, folks... I should know more in a few hours regarding whether I
was right or wrong in sidestepping the recruiter. First of all, I've been
at my present company 4-1/2 years and can afford to lose this opportunity.
Remember I wasn't looking. Second, like many of you I have a L-O-N-G list
of credentials and am not about to move just for the sake of moving...this
has to benefit ME first!
Yes, I'd like to take on the new opportunity, but I am not in a position
where I have to grovel any longer. I have acted professionally, courteously
and in a timely manner. Is it too much to expect the same of the recruiter?
I think not. And when I sent a redacted LinkedIn profile (complete with the
recruiter's photo) to one of you, the reply was "Why is she in a disco?"
