This isn't related to IT but I see a few non-IT related threads here. I debated about putting it here or at the "off topic" area but feel free to move this.
Re: agencies. As I have gotten other work I've always let the the few agencies that I work with what is happening with me. I got this role, at this place, doing this, this is when the contract ends and I have kept in contact with them maybe 2 months before the end to let them know I will be soon needing their services, when I am between work I have kept in contact with them every 2 weeks. When I look back while they do keep in contact with you via email in maybe 2yrs they may have only referred me to 2 interviews. Does this sound normal?
For those who have been employers or sat on the interviewing panel. What do you think about being honest in an interview or those that say rehearse interview questions and answer them that way. I'm pretty straight forward, I don't want to take a job and set too high of an expectation that I may not be able to fulfill. I'm looking for a good fit, I'm not looking for the best pay or career progression every 3yrs. When one looks at your CV they more or less know what you have done and how your career have changed or developed over the years. When an agency has sent me to an interview, at times it felt like my CV clearly shows this even if it was something I did in the past or something I guess I could do with transferable skills but it contradicts what my CV has been moving towards.
Appreciate your views.
