    What an absolute load of rubbish! James Moore is citing anecdotal stories to back up a truly ridiculous statement. Recruiters do not hold back candidates, we are driven by client need and the demanding lists of essential criteria along with desirable skills, Recruiters are looking to place candidates in jobs. If the client stopped adding ridiculous lists of essential criteria, we could open up the job to others. James Moore should come and work in the real world instead of blurting out ridiculously ill-informed statements without any evidence to back it up.
