There are companies out there that serve a middleman for big companies
and people looking for a job. The headhunter is hired by the big company
looking for someone to hire. i.e. a designer. The company says to the
headhunter, "Hey we're looking for a designer that does this and that
and specializes in this." The headhunter looks in his file of designers
and recommends who the company should interview. This saves alot of
time for the company so they pay the headhunter for their help. The
good news for you, the designer, is that you don't have to pay for the
headhunter to find you a job. The bad news is they usually have
requirements of at least one year full-time experience. For more info,
check out the list of headhunters below.
