How lame is this:
Since I have started working as an independent contractor in the IT business I have been contacted many times by various companies and recruiters. The primary channel of communication is the phone with email coming in a close second. Today was the first time I got an SMS from a recruiter. This is not someone I have been in touch with before. I feel that SMS is not a communication medium suitable for initiating business contact. I just can't see the 160 characters of unformatted text being a good way to introduce yourself. As a result, this particular recruiter gets a big thumbs down.
