A recruiter contacts me about a direct hire in city X. He is eager to move forward, but is difficult to work with.
The next day a different recruiter from a different staffing company contacts me about the same position.
I can now if I really want to work with 3 different entities. My choice of recruiter. Or I think it will not be hard to seek out that company in city X, and work with them directly.
Provided I am looking to get hired, what can be my course of action?
I am seeking an answer that will address both my situation and the general policy, philosophy, and framework, when coming in contact with and working with recruiters.
