Re: [newtech-1] IT Recruiters

I am not a recruiter (I like introducing people too much to get paid for it); I prefer to get paid solving business operations and strategy problems. But I have worked with many for years.

Whoever you deal with, check them out. Intensely. Check who their references are. If they ever speak about an opportunity, be absolutely sure that they have a contract and relationship, not hoping for it. Check the differences between contingency and retainer recruiters. Matter of fact, pick up a copy of "Rites of Passage" by John Lucht. Some fluff and kitsch in there, but the basics are sound and really important. Remember incentives and how they matter.

There are some slick and slimy recruiters, some nice but incompetent ones, and there are some really first-class ones at all levels. Work with the right ones, and things can be great.

Just my $0.02.

Hi Guys:
    Is there anyone out there that can recommend a solid, reputable recruiter in the NYC area within the Information Technology realm?
My background is in networking with heavy experience in the financial industry. The IT world is truly a tight community in which I trust and respect advice.
