    Dear Career Doctor,
    I have been contacted many many times by IT staffing firms asking for permission to submitt my resume. I usually say yes. Sometimes I get an interview. But I am starting to think that I am being presented as the “high end” candidate in order to make the less expensive candidate seem like a better deal. Is this a common practice in staffing firms? I have seen it in real estate, but now I am thinking that staffing firms do this too. What do you think?

      Hi Michele,

      I can see your concern with these staffing firms. There is no definite answer because it is impossible to be think for other people. But I do think the company might be using you as a fall back candidate. You have the skills their looking for, the actual skills needed for the job but you might be a little more expensive than the other candidate.

      The company probably wants to see if the less expensive person can step up. If they don’t step up then you’ll probably get the job. How many times has this happened?
