2. Know the Recruiter and Past Qualifications
In any service based industry, you're going to find companies who employ individuals at a very cost effective rate. However, in the recruiting industry, this only proves to be a time waste of the employer's and job seeker's time.
It's best to understand that basic certifications do not make somebody a professional. It's best that you don't trust your career or HR services to anybody. Do your research.
If you're a job seeker, unfortunately you don't have the luxury of a full interview of the headhunter (if you want any of them to work with you), but instincts should prove to be just fine when determining how intelligent and effective the individual is.
Until you know the information, you should not go on blind interviews based on vague recommendations such as, "the company is the best." Or, if you are an employer, take any kind of guidance as to whom to hire.
While this may seem logical to many people, unfortunately it is not always practiced.
3. Make Sure That Your Recruiter Shares the Same Goals As You
Every project has an end-goal in mind. What do you want out of the hire and does the staffing agency have the intelligence to come through with those demands?
Always be reasonable, but get what you're paying for if you're a hiring company.
