    Still gathering requirements...

    I've taken to using the NDA approach which for at least a couple of my clients has been the case, there's a clause in there that stipulates I may not discuss any aspect of the contract with an unrelated 3rd party and that includes the rate.

    I then lighten the mood by telling the agent that I could tell them but the second I do, black helicopters would probably descend from on high and whisk them away...

    I guess my cat does drive me home. To me it centres around how many of these calls are actually going to produce an interview? or are even against a genuine requirement.

    For me, I very rarely get these types of calls. Do I feel that I'm missing anything, not really. -- They can only farm you if you let them.
