Nihil75669198dIt's not just recruiters, it's the companies too.
Like you said - the market is hot. Huge demand for engineers, and we're in short supply.
But still, every company thinks they can get you for less. They publish high salary to lure you in, then try reducing it with these excuses or making you feel inadequate.
AlmondSauce16010198dSometimes you have no real choice but to work with them unfortunately - you just need to have a few tactics for dealing with them. One of those is to increase your bottom line by the expected bonus amount, then add a bit - that way if they make arguments like the above, you're still good to go. And if you do get what you ask for, even better.
horus1315198dAccording to linkedIn the market is not only hot, but female, blonde and equipped with big breasts and false smiles. But swiping through the recruiters does not only visually resemble Tinder - it's also the same cirle of lure, humiliation and ghosting going on. Sometimes it's hard not to remember where to post the random dick pics followed by insulting messages.
