OK, I am finding myself in a situation where I need a job change.
Looking at newspapers online, and classified like monsterjobs, careerbuilders, etc. all the search criteria I use comes up with recruiting companies. There is one in particular that makes up a good 98% of the listings (and nothing good/bad said about them at the BBB site).
Is that now the norm? do employers now use these recruiters instead of placing their own advertisement? How do these things work? I mean, are they like Temp agencies where I can go form job to job to job depending where they send me? is the ‘pound the pavement’ method no longer valid?
so confused and a bit leery of these recruiters.
