That is how it is in my industry as well. May be different for IT, recruiters will not touch anyone with under 5 years experience in my industry because they get about 50% of placement salary as their one time finders fee so it is not worth their time to place lower people and not worth it for the company to pay a finders fee on an entry level employee.
