What is it with recruiters?

Why are all IT recruiters:

  • English? Almost every one of them.
  • Completely unable to communicate in any method other than the telephone?
  • Unable to accept any format other than MS Word. Even for Web and Linux jobs?

I don't get it. My theory on the last two is that they're mostly not very good at computers, hence their career choice of leeching off those who are. Why their all poms, not a clue.

There are some honourable exceptions to this, but they're thin on the ground.

Anyway, I'm after work. Interesting web stuff. Copy writing. Integration. Production. Freelance, contract, permanent.
