I've been in the IT industry for awhile now and I have noticed that allot of companies hire through recruitment agencies.
Are there techniques besides the obvious (IE: applying for jobs and sending the resume directly to a recruiter). I have heard that having your resume indexed in search engines (google, yahoo, bing ECT) with certain keywords helps recruiters find you. I have also heard that sites like dice.com are places to post your resume in the tech industry.
Also, I was wondering what kind of questions I can ask recruiters during the interview process to learn if they are a reputable agency and such.
