"Hi all !
Thanks much for all the insights and opinions !

"Thanks much Sarah for reading and caring to reply.
Yes of course the candidate is " unethical " .... but it seems to be an accepted behavior since not only is he doing it but recommending it to others...
What I wanted to know was if other…"
"I have to say the candidate seems very unethical in the first place. He didn't know about the opportunity, gets contacted by the agency and then applies direct!
I'm not quite clear on what stance you have taken and what part of this…"
Hi !I found this at another site .. from about 1 year ago ...Same has happened to us too occasionally .....add to this multiple CV submissions via different TPRs ( even when fully informed re the Client Company by both the TPRs...)If this has happened to you a TPR, what are the lessons learnt ?And if you are a Candidate what has your experience been - was it worthwhile to bypass the Agency ?Look forward to all comments and experiences from my more experienced colleagues…See More
