@ananeele:  Keep drinking.

I would have punched the Occupier………at least you are trying to get a damn job!

You should call back that recruiter and leave obscene messages on her answering machine*

I’m sorry your day sucked so horrifically bad. Do you know anyone in your field that could recommend a legit recruitier, career fairs, or the like?


*don’t actually do that.

@ananeele:  I’m so sorry to hear about your experience!  I have friends who are in the staffing industry…and I myself work for a staffing company (not as a recruiter, though!)  I think the reality is there are good recruiters, and there are NOT good recruiters.  In our branches, it is more of a “team” effort, so shame on the woman who helped you!  As frustrated as you might feel, I would encourage you to look at other staffing agencies in your search.  There are a lot of great, competitive companies out there who WON’T make you drive a million hours through a rainstorm only to tell you they can’t help you.  Drink a few beers and shake it off girl!  Good luck!

Holy crap, that sounds like an awful day/experience.  I got my current position by using a Head Hunter, but I got lucky.  20 other recruiters I talked to were a total scam.  I’m so sorry.  🙁

@ananeele:  As a suburb-of-DC-dweller, I feel your pain! I’m so sorry about your DC on a Friday experience, and I want to head down to that recruitment center and punch the girl right in the eye for you. This is so close to home. I’ve had similar experiences, and it’s so ridiculous. 

I’d call that woman back and tell her that you’re going to be working with another company because of her inability to match you up with positions you’re best suited to fill. 

Where do you live that’s 6 hours away? I’m a Marylander, and we have reputable recruitment / temp to hire agencies here. Maybe you’d have better luck with us? DC f-ing sucks.
