Comment wrong recruiter, wrong person, wrong job! (Score 1) 612

it so happens that I was looking for foss, oss, recruiting software today and ran across this.

it's a very funny story from Eric Raymond about a MS recruiter.

I am a recruiter who only works off of word of mouth from friends and former consultants. no spam, no pesky telemarketing. As well I have been trying to develop a system for out of my own pocket (NFP). We recruiters are not all pimps and pests. some of us have a few skills and don't search buzz words and pester busy managers to turn the next trick.

Make it right before you make it faster.
