Career Management: Working with Recruiters
External recruiter = headhunter = search firm consultant = third party
For job-search resources at different points in your career, you may consider working with recruiters, headhunters, search firms, third-party agencies or doing contract work. In this section we will use the term recruiter to indicate anyone acting as a third party between the candidate and employer. This person may source, screen, and/or interview potential candidates for a client company.
