Hunting the Headhunters

According to this article the headhunters are getting a dose of their own medicine.

The reasons:

  1. They don't pay as much as corporates.
  2. There doesn't exist any entry barrier to become a headhunter. Hence many see it as a stepping stone to a "better" job.

"The attrition rates in this industry have grown significantly as compared with the last year. Many of those who join the recruitment industry leave to join the corporate sector. We, however, do not discourage that as they turn to be our own ambassadors," said K Pandia Rajan, managing director of Chennai-based Ma Foi Management Consultants Ltd.
