Are Recruiters Hated?
Interesting piece of self-imagery here: http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/why-does-everyone-hate

I don’t think recruiters are generally hated. I think ‘not respected’ would be closer to what most people feel.

There are many reasons recruiters are not respected and most of them are related to the fact that the majority only deliver what their clients want, 20% of the time.

What I dislike most about a lot of recruiters is that many of them think cold-calling is selling.

It's like banding all chefs together, from McDonalds Burger flippers to Jamie Oliver and judging them as one. I don't that that would be fair on the McDonalds guys at all.

Maybe it's just that 98% of recruiters give the others a bad name.
