Didn't come from a recruiter. I found it in the classifieds in a local paper. My employer to be placed the ad and I responded, even though I had never been a university lecturer before. On the basis of my knowledge and the fact that I had given training courses, I became one.
I had enjoyed the ego building exercise of visiting recruiters and having them tell me that had terrific skills and was very employable, etc. But I didn't really fit with the offers that they sent me to, and thus it was up to me to re-invent myself. Perhaps if I had found and gone for the jobs, like I did, I would have been better able to bring out the appropriate talents.....
It's all history now that am retired anyway.
