Why You’re Paying 20% (or more!) for Recruiting

  There’s something odd about the recruiting industry: the ‘few good clients’ pay for the many more poor working relationships the industry seems to generate. When you cut that 20% fee check, you’re usually covering the cost of 4 other searches that went nowhere. (You’re so nice!) Oh, and the costs some other inefficiencies, too. […]
