Headhunters and Management Recruiters

If you are unhappy with your current job situation you may have had the opportunity to retain the services of a job recruiter or headhunter. For those employees who have not, a job recruiter or headhunter is an individual or company who attempts to match employees searching for a new job with companies in need of employees. Sometimes these recruiters are paid by the individual looking for a new job and sometimes by the employer looking to fill a need.

Using a job recruiter, headhunter, or placement agency is a great idea! However, be aware of the fact these recruiters are usually not attorneys and cannot provide you advice about employment contracts…especially the validity and enforceability of your current non-compete or non-solicitation agreement with your present employer.

Don’t end up paying for the services of a headhunter but then learn that you cannot take your “Dream Job” because of your non-compete agreement.
