IT recruitment is a lottery

An anonymous reader writes "The whole IT recruitment system seems a bit broken. Job descriptions suck because that consist vaguely related buzzwords jammed into bullet lists rather than an accurate representation of what the job entails. Resumes suck because candidates must try to catch a recruiter's eye by hitting all the bullet points in poorly worded job descriptions rather than describing the things they can actually do. Recruiters suck because they don't know how to sort qualified candidates from people who write buzzword compliant resumes. How do you find the right job, or the right employee, when you're stuck with a system that doesn't really work?"
