remember a recruiter's first pass is to find people that fit the requirements: there will be hundreds. their second pass: find any reason to exclude as many applicants as possible. Only then they look for the best.


I think you don't quite realise just how many recruiters are on there these days... and they want EVERYONE. One day you can set your status to "looking for work" and they next day you will be in an interview for a role you have never even heard of before! (well, I exaggerate, but they definitely aren't picky).
