Discussion: January 19, 2010 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter
In today’s Q&A a reader lost a precious job offer because she let a “headhunter” get involved:
My daughter recently got a job offer from a Fortune 100 company. When her headhunter sent them a bill, the company withdrew the offer. They said their policy excludes headhunters. Something doesn’t sound right. Please advise me.

What scams have you encountered? How do you check out headhunters before you let them “present you” to an employer? Has a headhunter’s bad behavior ever cost you a job? Tell us — and help others avoid catastrophe.
