GeneralWhat's the use of a Recruiter if he decides on own!! PinPopular

Though not in need of a job change, I just sent some feelers in the online world. One Recruiter contacted me about an opportunity which was good but said It involves some coding demonstration , which was fine with me. So he wanted to know what I need to do a coding so he can arrange it in his office. I mentioned that would prefer Keyboard (English and not German), mouse and big monitor along with internet connection.
He asked the purpose of Internet, and said need to Google the syntax or whatever. He replied saying googling for syntax or any reference is not acceptable for Engineer/Developers. Also Mentioned that the Company wont accept it as a legit test.

I directly approach the company after figuring out and I got the coding package with requirements and instructions. Interesting part is that I am allowed to do from home and use any resources like books, internet, opensource code etc. Only thing they had mentioned is that If I am using Code/Module from external source , I should cite its source.

The footer in the instruction has this quote Smile | :)
