I am interested in your take on this. I am getting a fair number of calls from recruiters. However, after it all shakes out, I am finding that the recruiter is not the direct contact to the hiring manager.
For example, one recruiter I met with just told me she briefed her account managers on me, who presented me to the client, putting another layer btwn me and the hiring manager.
Should I be asking for a clarification of the recruiter's role in the relationship/hiring process or can that be taken as insulting to the recruiter?
