    Default Is Indian Offshoring moving...

    ... from the IT Call Centres to Recruitment? Had 3 phone calls this morning from Indian agents and I have this urge to give up hope.
    If your company is the best place to work in, for a mere £500 p/d, you can advertise here.

    They have been doing this for some years now. They tend to be linked to the Offshore body-shops so they won't be paying UK market rates. Just quote a silly rate (tbh they'll think almost anything is a silly rate) and they'll leave you alone.

    I think a few on here have taken roles via offshore agents. Horrible working conditions, troubles getting paid, etcetc.

    The problem is, they have short memories as they will call back within 2 minutes from a differemt number as if they haven't spoken to you and they will use different names to introduce themselves.

    I have a very finely tuned bullsh!t detector.

    With these sorts of calls I normally hang up before they've even finished their first sentence.

    With me it is the way they say "Hello" in an echo chamber.

    I usually hear the Dalek voice within a few words. I have just had another one on the phone (I think it was the same caller with an Indian accent) calling from a very bad phone line.

    Erm.. Guys n gals... I'd drop the Bob term before Cojak turns up. Not very PC anymore. Was OK back in the day of our long since departed esteemed coder but I've a feeling it's frowned upon now it's become a generic term.
