Part 5: What It All Means for Job Seekers

by Tony Beshara - Creator of The Job Search Solution Online Program

Working with Recruiters

What this all means to you is simply this: a recruiter might be able to help you. But you need to manage your expectations of what a recruiter can do for you and help them help you. And what a recruiter can do for you depends on the nature of the recruiter and their relationship with the hiring authority or hiring company they are working for or representing.

There are a number of types of different recruiters and their relationship with the hiring authority or hiring company varies. The types are:

  • Retained/ Search Consultants
  • Contingency/ Search Consultants
  • Employment Agents
  • Placers
  • Contract Recruiters, Internal and External
  • Internal Recruiters
  • H.R. Staff Recruiters and Screeners
  • Research Consultants
  • Consulting Firms for Long Term Projects
  • Staffing Firms
  • Management Consulting Firms (that recruit as part of their offering)
