Before I switched to tech, I was an attorney for 10 years. Both industries are saturated with recruiters, so I have seen my fair share. Scott is the best I have come across so far. Anyone can slap on a suit and call themselves a recruiter. I cannot think of any industry with a lower barrier to entry. 99% of these guys are pitching consultancy gigs or contract work for the finance and e-commerce sectors. It's hard to find one who can actually put you up for a full-time position with a real tech company. Scott can do that. He has a knack for professionalism and presentation, watches what he says, and articulates well. That's the person you want dropping your resume on an employer's desk. And that's probably why the organization I just interviewed with is a step up from where I'm coming from. If you need more convincing, take a look at the guy's LinkedIn. His recruiting days predate the Great Recession. I graduated from law school in 2009, and after about 300 carefully targeted resumes I finally got a job paying half what new patent attorneys made in ordinary times. But if us lawyers had it bad, for recruiters it was the apocalypse. Only the best of them made it through that particular stretch of time in one piece. The rest just sort of faded out of existence.
