Some recruiting firms have quotas.  Their recruiters must meet with the required number of candidates, even if the candidates are outside of their field.  I’m not sure why a recruiter would want to spend time with someone they know they can’t help, but I’m certain that it’s not a good use of a candidate’s time.   How do you make sure that a recruiter can help you find a job that matches your specific set of skills and preferences?  Ask these two questions to make sure your recruiter can actually help you find a great job.
