A little randomness for a Tuesday:
So I got a call from a head-hunter today. More appropriately, a "professional recruiter". Now, I'm not opposed to head-hunters. I've had good experiences with them from both sides of the hiring equation. But they're a pretty varied lot, and not all are wonderful. And my current company doesn't use them.
This fellow today, turns out he's trying to find a candidate for a company I left a few years back. A departure that didn't exactly go smoothly. I didn't want to burn any bridges, but that feeling wasn't mutual.... Not quite 6 years later, I'm only a little bit bitter.
Anyway, I was polite to the guy, but I didn't give him any leads. And he chatted and chatted and chatted.... Meanwhile, it made me think about the Molly Hatchet song "The Bounty Hunter".
