Based on my recent job-hunting experience over the past six months, you
are completely incorrect.  Most of the job ads on Craigslist were direct,
for example, and that's how I found my current job (not to mention my
previous job five years ago).  The Python job board also mostly has
direct listings:

Nevertheless, many companies do use recruiters, though I'll recuse myself
from voting on whether BayPIGgies should allow recruiters.

are strings for other good reasons."  --Aahz
