You give recruiting a bad name

This news item shows how unscrupulous recruiters and consultants are making more money than just their salaries !

Thanks to the great talent crisis in India Inc, a new scam is brewing in the recruitment industry.
Malpractices such as recruitment of unsuitable talent, sharing of revenues between recruiter and hirer, headhunting from one client to fulfil the needs of another and re-recruitment of a candidate recently placed is becoming fairly common nowadays

Such accusations have always been whispered and rumored about HR and Recruiting professionals who've made more money than "expected" over and beyond "known sources of income" but nothing has ever been proved. However, people have been asked to silently leave organizations, but much to the chagrin of their employers have moved to heftier pay packets and bigger organizations, because of a shortage of recruiting talent !
