Signs of a Secret Network
In '02 a cold call from a recruiter landed me a pretty nice job, so I am not willing to dismiss this entirely, but the sequence of events makes me suspicous.
Never mind that most of the recruiter's web sites look rather amateurish (remember the old FrontPage 2.0-generated sites?).
It's just too weird. Am I being waaay too paranoid, or are these recruiting agencies some sort of scheme or scan?
