How many recruiters should I deal with?
I moved in London and start looking for a job in Online marketing.

My gut feeling would be to keep just two or three, but any advice?

I registered with a good few initially. However, i find that i am only actually in touch with 2 or 3. I keep in regular contact as well and i feel that i can actually approach them with any queries/problems that i also have.
