Looking for a job? Think recruiters are lined up to help you do that? Think again.
There are many misconceptions about how recruiters can help you with your search. To help dispel a few of the most common myths I recently gave an interview to Vickie Elmer for the Washington Post. Vickie got it right and shared great perspective for job seekers (and I'm not just saying that because I was one of the people they quoted ... but I was glad the quotes were accurate).
Before you offer to buy coffee for a recruiter, or ask a recruiter to give you feedback on your resume, please read her story - you'll be glad you did.
