Today, clients have ever higher expectations of the headhunters they work with. They expect robust analysis of the vacancy, a comprehensive search for relevant candidates, and a rigorous evaluation at interview. They are critical of candidates and don’t want to see just ‘ the usual suspects’ but also some ‘odd ones out’.
