Precisely. I have told each agency I have worked with over the years that
they may not present my resume without my consent. In order to give that
consent, I need to know where they want to present me. I, too, have worked
with more than one recruiter at a time, and must be vigilant that my resume
does not appear more than once for the same position. I also want to
prevent them from presenting me for positions at companies where I do not
want to work, often because of the company's location or because I don't
feel qualified to work in particular areas of technology.
