15. Today A Recruiter Asked Me For The Names Of.....
anyone i might have known from when I worked an IT contract gig at our local utility company.

BEFORE he ever mentioned the gig he was calling me about.

Then he wanted to know what consulting firms I was talking to and what companies I had interviewed with.

So he would know who his competition was.

He never did tell me the details of the gig he was calling me for.
