Recruitment and Diversity Assist In Getting Jobs
Headhunters are engaged in recruiting or soliciting people to fill up job opportunities within a company, non-profit organization or even the military. Sometimes these employment recruiters work inside human resource department of the organization and sometimes in an outsourcing basis. These outsource recruiters work for many clients at the same time and are usually paid as third-party brokers. They are most commonly called headhunters, search firms or recruitment consultants.
A recruiter of an agency is a vital part of searching for jobs but it should not be your only job search source.
These recruiters work for their hiring company and that is where their loyalty lies as they are trying to make their client happy and hence they may not be good for the job seeker.
This is probably due to the fact that there are no set rules for an employment agency and any one can set up shop.
