Does anyone know of a good business analyst recruiter in Manhattan?

I am a Business Analyst currently for a consulting company on contract for the US Navy in NH and I want to find a job in Manhattan this year.

My lease ends in August so that is my deadline. I have about 8 months experience currently.

I called one recruiter from Robert Half technology and he hardly gave me the time of day. I have applied to some positions on Craigslist and have had no luck.

Any advice/ideas to get the ball rolling?

Should I Be A Computer Programmer Or Business Analyst?

I have been working as a programmer and now ended up with an offer for business application analyst with some reporting responsibilities job.

I am confused whether to go ahead and take the job or wait for a programming job.

Is a career as business application analyst good?

Are there chances for advancement?
