"I hate recruiters."
Do you really mean it when you say this? Often I find that people who say this do so because they had a bad experience with a recruiter in the past. If that's the case, my advice is to communicate your preferences for establishing a better working relationship this time. Focus on the end result, i.e. finding a new job, and how the recruiter may be your only link to some opportunities, such as those that aren't advertised.
