the recruiter honeypot
wow, I thought it was hard hiring in Dublin. Sounds like Silicon Valley is insane.

"Unfortunately, it’s not all about the numbers. Though external recruiters perform well for start-ups, there’s another side to this story. It pains me to write this but I think it’s important to share. Meebo employed lots of external recruiters when we were getting off the ground. We had standard 18-month no-poach restrictions with all of our contractors that specified that those recruiters were not allowed to contact Meebo employees within 18 months of our contract expiring. Most of those contracts expired in 2008-2009.

However, every recruiter and firm we’d worked with who was still in the recruiting business tried to poach [the 'honeypot' employee] Pete London."

(Another lesson: don't build a product in javascript, since it's impossible to hire engineers ;)
