As a job seeker, working with a recruiter who is an industry expert can help maximize your options, and ensure you get a fair market offer. Since a recent survey determined only around 39% of people negotiated salary during their last job move the majority of candidates leave money on the table. As an employer, the right recruiter can be invaluable source of specialized candidates, and can serve as a valued partner in evaluating talent. In both cases the recruiter serves to bridge the gap between a hiring manager and their future colleague, helping to create a more cohesive hiring experience. If you hire the right recruiter, that is.

Here are the different types of recruiters, why companies hire each and what you should keep in mind during your conversation with them.

These are the recruiters that candidates have the most experience with early on in their career. Also known as temp or staffing agencies, these guys are all about volume. They are the big contract houses (like Aerotek, where I started my career). These companies have divisions that cover everything from customer service to sales, marketing and construction management.

When do companies use them? Contract houses offer flexibility to hire and release employees due to demand or when people are needed for limited term projects but there is uncertainty about whether these roles will become long term. Some examples of this are for seasonal workers or roles with a high degree of turnover.

The advantage of working with a contract house is their hiring speed. They have a big database of contractors and people who can start ASAP. They also take all the risk and act as the employer, providing liability, insurance, benefits and payroll services.
