I was talking with a recruiter friend of mine that I often do splits with. We were of course talking about the tough times we are going through right now. We then got into "It is so bad, I have resorted to...." and we were on the phone laughing until tears were rolling down my face. Misery does love company.

I was telling the story of how I had taken this very poor paying recruiting job in a foreign country, just to keep busy, and to see if I could recruit in a foreign country from here in the US. Guess what, the job was easier than I thought. I should've known with the internet. I am enjoying learning the culture, and the company has an office here in the states. You never know, I might get one of their reqs here in the US and get the standard fee recruiters charge here in the US.

Just so you don't feel sorry for me, I do have some regular clients here in US that I am working with that are actually hiring. Like the rest of us, I am finding that I have to work much harder for my fee. I am just one of those people that likes a busy desk and will do whatever to keep busy. In order to keep busy these days though, I have to take what I can get...I am a recruiting whore. Will work for $$$. :-)
