And your self-interest usually doesn't line up with either type. 13 38 62 6 Contingency Recruiters: Look Out for Yourself Paid only if you're hired, the contingency recruiter will help early in your career...and may hinder later. Price-tagging, racing, "free speech," and more. Online hazards. 7 Retainer Recruiters: Look Out for Yourself It's great to be "found" by the retainer recruiters. But they have to block far more opportunities than they can show you. Five-bullet Russian Roulette.

You're the sort of product direct mail can sell. And no, it won't make you any less attractive to employers or recruiters. 181 86 117 12 Your Personal Sales Representative Your resume is your sales-rep-on-paper.
