Recruiters are like...!

Find the right pair for you!
So you find yourself thinking about engaging with a 'Recruiter' and need some guidance as to who, where, what, when...

Recruiters are like Underwear!
  • Some crawl up your arse - and annoy the hell out of you
  • Some snap under pressure - and let you down
  • Some don’t have the strength to hold you up – and leave you hanging around
  • Some get a little twisted – and cause irritation
  • Some are your favorite – they always work for you, with you and you know they are without checking
  • Some are completely unsuitable – they look good on others, but not on you
  • Some are cheap and plain nasty – they sell in bulk and don't care about fit or size
  • And the good ones - cover your arse when you need them too!


So when you are looking to 'engage' a Recruiter, shop around, find ones that can meet your needs and 'fit' - ensuring that you are comfortable with them.
