That is very true! And emoticons just don't have the same effect! All comments seem to come across as quite mean! Maybe I'm taking it too personally.

Well it is a good hub for the industry and stringing out into NJ/CT and to a less extent MA.

LinkedIn advice is the best one given though, of joining groups and getting involved, which gets one noticed and people to connect too and getting recommendations from those in the industry and on the ground in the area.

Though focusing on a recruiter in a specific location is a bit of a waste, a good one will have contacts all over...and unless you're really senior, they're mostly as much use as a pin pricked hat...pucking useless as they just scatter gun approach people, putting companies off so that they don't have to pay a fee if you contact them by other means.

For needing a visa, you'll want to contact companies you are interested in directly by founding the hiring managers and getting in touch with them directly, which you can do by using LinkedIn.

Recruiters are in the business of fulfilling the company's need for staff so they can get their fee.

They have no particular interest in you getting the position. Just that someone from their books gets the position.

Another vote for LinkedIn.
Also, I hope you're under 50 years old.
And on top of digital marketing initiatives.

This thread is a disgrace, rather than just answer the OPs question as best as possible with the information provided. OP gets a bunch of rude bickering posts.

I wonder what Internet Brands thinks about this, the idea of a forum is to foster a community, not have a bunch of 'regulars' scare new members away. It certainly feels like the "old boys/girls" club here at times.

I realize this is off-topic, but it had to be said. I'll go find my fire retardent suit now.

I agree, but when a gamekeeper is the primary poacher what are the rest of us supposed to do? :unsure:

I can assure you Internet Brands doesn't care that this thread has over 700 page impressions and climbing.
