Yeah a recruiter I worked with would never show job descriptions then pain a picture that the job was exactly what I wanted. Then I’d go online and find the jobs and what he said would be 50% true. Needless to say I told him to get lost after a few instances of this.

Yes this is the job of a recruiter.
