Smaller agencies and independent headhunters typically wear both ‘hats’ and balancing the two functions effectively can be difficult. Adding to an already complex set of incentives and interests, candidates understand that recruiter’s incentives are more closely aligned with the employer and may approach recruiters cautiously or avoid this career channel altogether.
