I find it intriguing that you have referred several times to Kennedy's list of
recruiters. Granted, it's fairly comprehensive and up to date, but I have some
I find their list is very difficult to sort out with regard to recruiting specialty.
And, more importantly to the recruiting industry, Kennedy publications is well known
for their support of the contention that "All Contingency Recruiters are Unethical
For the edification of those reading this newsgroup, recruiters who work "on
contingency" only get paid when they make the placement. Retained firms get paid
upfront, before the placement is made. Kennedy pubs, and retained search firms in
general, contend that this leads to conflict of interest and other problems.
Your comments would be most welcome.
By the way, as well as providing a comprehensive biotechnology, pharmaceutical and
medical industry staffing resource, effective and comprehensive directories of
recruiters may be easily obtained via FSG Online.
