I currently have a job, but it’s not really that interesting. A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by a recruitment firm about a permanent position. I have had a telephone screening and an in-person meeting that have both gone pretty well. I was informed that I would need to have another meeting before any sort of official offer and that they would get in contact with me. The recruiter ended up calling me shortly after this in-person meeting, asking for me to sign an agreement that would basically allow them to accept offers on my behalf. I cannot see how letting someone else accept an offer on my behalf would be good. I haven’t even had the final meeting and may not like the person that I will have to answer to.
Have any of you had such a request to sign something like this? If you did, in what way did you handle the situation?
