I recently spoke with a recruiter and was told that she could clearly see that I have Collection experience but due to it not being recent enough (Medical) she would not be able to forward my resume BUT would keep my resume on file. Really, I have 20 years of Collection (Auto, Medical, Business to Business, Consumer, Account Receivable) experience and to be told that its not recent enough was truly upsetting.

I have 30 years of software development experience and get the same response.

My theory is that the recruiters are trying to get names and resumes from people but the job really isn't there. They think they will be getting them in a few weeks or months. Hence the "on file" remark.

But, yes, 30 years of software development in other languages, to many recruiters, means nothing, even when they are looking for minimal experience in XYZ language.
