How to Find a Headhunter or Recruiter to Get You a Job Now

As seen in:

You want to know how to find a headhunter. But first—


Let’s be real for 10 seconds.


Recruiters have a reputation that precedes them. Just like Prosecco, some love them, some hate them, and others, don’t even know of them.


The biggest goal of any corporate recruitment service is to help companies find the best talent possible.


Enter you, a talented job seeker.


Naturally, you’d think that reaching out to a professional headhunter would help both of you, well—help each other out.


Except, doing so raises so many questions that even Prosecco won’t help: How do I reach out to a placement agent near me? What’s the best employment recruiter for management positions? How do I find a job through a headhunter service?


Way too many questions we could list here, but not to worry, in about 6 min you’ll learn how to find and use recruiters to get your dream job like you were born to it.


This guide will show you:


  • Where to search for a hiring recruiter.
  • How to pick the best recruiter who’ll get you hired faster.
  • Tips and examples of an effective resume that’ll get the top recruiters to work with you.
  • How to approach and negotiate your salary with your professional headhunter.
  • How to use your experience with search firms to improve your job search.
