Recruitment agents will search you out

I got a call from a recruitment agent today… she found my CV on google.
I didn’t know recruitment agents actively went looking for candidates on google but its nice to know I rank high enough to get a phone call, even tho the job was not right for me and she would have know that if she had taken a few mins to read my CV.

From my experience and what I’ve heard most recruitment agents use a blanketing approach to filling vacancies by putting forward any one who even slightly matches the spec needed or even if they don’t hoping that one will stick and they can get some commission.

Some are good tho like the ones that got me my current jog Ecom.


To all the people (and spam bots) that may one day read this.

This is the first of many posts in my personal bolg.

Who am i???

Well I am Sam.

I like the web, making stuff for the web, looking at stuff on the web and sharing it.

As I write this I am currently working as a Flash developer @ Emak Mafu, a digital agency and have recently graduated Staffordshire University, with a BA First class honours in Interactive Multimedia, check that shit out!

I’ve been nominated for a couple of awards including the Europrix Top Talent Award 2007 and BIMA Award 2007 for my final university work Interactive Television Polling. But didn’t actually win anything but I will win something on day… you read it her first, even if it is just a raffle or £10 on the lottery.

That’s enough ramblings and talking about myself for now. And maybe even for ever….
