Ah yes but how do you get an agency to submit you or a company
to interview you? Boring work is better than no work.
For example, there is a company near where I live that has been
wanting clinical background with manufacturing with SPC certifications
with Stat with SAS and some other specific software. They have been
looking for 9 months and still not found anyone.
Most agencies will not submit you unless you have every single item
the company lists on the position. Most HR people are too lazy to
read and understand a detailed resume.
