dan-pud68912dRecruiter looks like shit, not your fault. Hopefully you now have a future opportunity
Voxera760012dTo many recruiters do not read up.
I get a lot like that, especially UK based ones that flat out lies to both the customer and to the people looking for a job.
I had one such instance, and this cannot be blamed on lack of domain specific knowledge since it was the difference between working on internal projects or as an external consultant. If the recruiter does not the difference of that their in the wrong business;)
They said they had asked the company and been told if was for an internal position.
Once at the site for an interview it took less than 3 minutes to find out it was not, they where looking for external consultants and had no internal positions.
After another 2 min for me to finish my tea and explaining the promise I had received from the agency we shook hands and I left.
When I called back to the agency and told them that their promise of an internal position was not true they actually got angry at me and hang up :)
Luckily it was not I who had contacted them.
kamen489312dThat's a shitty recruiter indeed. They should apologise for wasting your time.

Sitting down with his boss it becomes readily apparent that what HE is looking for is someone like me - entry level dev, lots of experience with it projects (was closing on ten years), but he wanted to pay for an entry level IT supporter and those were the main duties too.
Finished my cocoa and got the fuck out.
