Very good post indeed. In my opinion, many of the high-street (Big name) consultants are more interested in their Commission rather than your career.
I guess the lesser known agencies are far better. I met a good lady at her small 5th floor office nr Liverpool st, with whom I spent more time discussing my career rather than the actual role.
Her advise, few like - Three or more temp jobs in your CV and you will be forever temping, and then permanent jobs will be nearly impossible to get were really appreciate, which none of the Big players care to give.
Thanks very much for this post by Sandy too - Tricks used by Consultants / Agencies
On the contrary, there was a remark by one consultant in another leading Recruitment agency, that some of the guys seeking employment tend to provide false references, documents or in even 1 case was working after visa expired. These kind of things they say, might end up in Companies suing the Recruitment agencies for Millions of pounds for not fully / correctly referencing employers (as they would get kicked by HO).
So, to summarise, maybe if we could trust each other and are both genuine in our approaches, everybody could benefit.
