What difference does it make to know your people ?

A banner has just popped up - ", 40 000 000 resumes". Or something like that.

Imagine a database of 40 000 000 documents prepared by people who have strong incentive to lie. What would level of noise be ? How reliable would it be ? What amount of sifting through is required to find anyone ?

Compare this to how this company works - Core Search Group

A recruiter from them once contacted me, but not with a standard template offer, heck, not even with an offer at all. The guy has actually read my blog and (I'd guess) my published resume and addressed me with remarks about it that made sense ! I responded with a detailed explanation of who I am and how I work and this, beside my resume may be somewhere on their file.

I realize this is their work, but still, what difference does it make !
