missingcol- please don't lump all "headhunters" into a bucket... just like any other profession there are lots of good recruiters out there.

And, coming from someone who is a "corporate" headhunter, sending your resume directly to the hiring manager and circumventing HR is often the fastest way to shoot yourself in the foot.

I think what he/she is saying that alot of ads on Monster, Careerbuilder and
yaooh jobs are not neccessarily legit, rather they are being used by headhunters and agencies to recriut candidates. Thats how I read it at least

A good recruiter really helps a lot in your job hunting in general. I just try to give advices based on some of my "bad" experiences. Sometimes, the AD is very attractive and makes you excited, but it turns to nothing there at the end. I don't like it. I also believe that it is done by a very small percentage of recruiters.
