  1. Recruiters being stood down “left, right, and centre”? Sounds like karma to me. I hope that they suffer the same malarkey going through the recruitment process as their industry have made their job seekers endure over the years, only they won’t – they’ll get a new job through networking and contacts like everyone else who understands recruiters are a waste of time.

  2. Mr/Mrs Cynical, just shows that you are going to the wrong recuritment agencies… Stick to the Australian owned agencies!!!!!!!!!!!!!….
