    I have to say that i detest Agencies and i try to apply directing to employers . I have a very good working background and have found that over the years the overwhelming amount of agencies who are time-wasting liars who constantly state they have vacancies for a particular job which meets my criteria - only to find the job doesn't exist or they request to have a face- to -face meeting only to put my details on file.There is nothing so depressing as not having work, especially as i have worked constantly for 14 years and then to contend to these *******s who have no thought for anyone else but their pathetic games. I have read so many peoples comments on various websites where their experiences have been the same. Why isnt Job agencies monitor and penalties issued or shut down for false advertisement? Why are they still in business?.. I have only meet One agency that was good and unfortunately it is no longer in business, but the liars are allow to flourish?

    You have a choice to not use them. LinkedIn makes it much easier to find jobs directly now, so just avoid them.

    If even a hint of this attitude comes across to an agency, it isn't surprising that they aren't calling you back.

    I never said it wouldn't. But the overly aggressive nature of your posts won't help your job search if it spills over to how you come across in person, so if ranting on here helps allievate that risk, so be it.
