I was a career contractor for the better part of 20 years, and have used those sites for the most part There's no getting around this. Agencies don't go directly to those sites. They have mining tools that usually go so far as to write the introductory emails for them.

My suggestion is to create a 'job search' email account, hold your nose, and just barrel ahead.

IT recruiters are people who failed the ethics exam to be used car salesmen and the intelligence test to be toll takers.

When you find one that's an exception (they do actually exist) hold on with both hands.
