Today I talked to a recruitment agent after nyarbaggytep pointed… - Corrosive Shame

Today I talked to a recruitment agent after nyarbaggytep pointed me at an ad. She suggested she had a different vacancy to the one advertised (of course!). Then when I told her my salary she said "You're doing well for someone your age" and when I said I had no commitments which would prevent relocation said "You'd be a nice catch - shame I'm already married".

Excuse me?!

I suspect it was on a list of stock lines and she has me pegged as a typical-fat-geek-nerd-with-no-social-skills.

Christ Almighty. It's stuff like this which makes people think all recruitment people are wankers.

You're not?

More seriously I wish I knew the game a bit better when it comes down to answering questions, reasonable salary inflations etc.

Any hints?

Is it my fault my keyboard didn't register my pressing of the "K" key?

no, I mean a typical-geek-nerd-with-no-social-skills certainly, but not fat...

I was glossing over that comment ;-)

She meant "you're a bit old to be unattached".

Naaa grendelchild had it right first time - you need to *recon* the situation to make sure you're in with a chance...

Oh that brings me back to all those flashbacks I have of being in nam
