Is threre really a war for talent or are Recruiters playing the shuffle game?

I guess the title is self explanatory. Companies are far less looking at recruiters to assess potential candidates. All they want is to steal from their competitors. If a recruiter works a certain niche market, he/she can make a good living just shuffling one person over to the competitor. Once that candidate has been with the competitor for 2-3 years (maybe more), the recruiter than takes that same candidate and shuffles him off to another competitor.There is no really 'assessment' of talent anymore - unfortunately.


Oh well, I guess recruiters can continue to play this 'game' and collect their fees from playing the 'shuffle game'....


Opinions are welcomed....

But the real question is...Is it a black horse painted with white stripes or a white horse painted with black stripes?  Now let's see how good an eye you have.  :)
