May 7, 2015 Exclusively Not Yours

Another job hunter horror story. A recruiter contacts a candidate looking and says they must sign an agreement for the recruiter to exclusively represent the candidate. The rate is high so the candidate agrees. It is later discovered that the recruiter wanted to lock in the candidate at the higher rate so they could pitch a cheaper candidate and pick up the difference. The candidate recommended not signing such agreements and to let the recruiters compete for candidates or just go directly to employers.
