    I thought posts were supposed to be kept on topic. Okay so maybe the thread is a bit silly, but I needed to know and there have been some good advice.

      I will stop making these types of threads on topics that I'm genuinely clueless and aren't taken seriously to learn anything from. Last thing I need is to be labelled troll... when all I wanted to know was your experience from professional working relationship to something informal and how it happened.
      Contractor = prostitute. We sell ourselves to the highest bidder, lie on our backs and and take whatever's coming because at the end of the day we're laughing all the way to the bank. Like an aged harlot we know all the best tricks and don't take to kindly to the new dog in town

      Agent = pimp. They do **** all apart from collect a tithe from their bitches which they squander on watches that kill cats and hair gel. Their only active role is in finding johns and once one has been procured then they're out...until repeat business is required.

        Are you trying to say that job seekers fall into the traps of agents who are only in it for themselves? And contractors bypass all of that?

        I know that not all the recruiters are truthful, I have calls from some that I didn't give my number and they said they've found my CV then we have a chat about various things and a potential job... but they never call back after the first contact.
        I have finished my studies and I'm looking for work. If anyone's interested:

        - I make excellent coffee.
        - I'm ethically flexible. Very open-minded.
        - I live within my means, no financial risks, no gambling.
        - I don't have a religion, so no sneaky conversion attempts.
        - I buy the first round.
        - Easily adaptable to new groups, environments... go with the flow type.

          On most forums spamming is usually against the rules, I thought it'd be the same here. No I'll read it now.

          EDIT: I don't see any Warning thread here??

            I got my best ever gig in a pub. I just bumped into someone who I had worked with before and said "we are looking for a guy with your skills - how much does it take to get you out of your current gig?".

              What it means is that in professional forums we are polite and (usually) helpful.

              General is where we kill time posting rubbish or taking the Mickey out of each other. We don't need to be polite so I can call Someone a clueless wet behind the ears useless wannabe f**kwit if I want to.

              Kurzon you are a clueless wet behind the ears useless wannabe f**kwit.

              Now go and use milkround and other similar sites build up a cv with a few success stories and come back here in 8 years when you can walk the walk and have a reputation that proves it

                Well I don't care about swearing or offensive language, especially if it's deserving, truthful and/or helpful.

                I completely forgot about Milkround!

                  Most of them are, albeit in a dried head on a pole kind of way.
                  While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

                    I was offered my best ever gig in a pub. Top dollar and the agent bought me beer till three in the morning, then back to mine till I fell asleep on the couch

                    When I woke up he was gone, never heard about the gig again and he still owes me £50. Plus I must have had a dodgy pint because my @rse was killing me for a week afterwards...still never mind, no one said networking in pubs was going to be easy
