Sorry for totally leaving the original topic here, but:

Same for me: Got an e-mail from some "technical sourcer", replied (I'll actually be looking for a job soon), never got anything back. - Twice!

I imagine they do a

, but with several agents which don't sync back their results.

Doesn't seem to be age-related, though. (I'm 25)
