Why waste money on employing a professional head hunter when you can find you next star yourself by using social networks?

    Firstly the 30-35% of Salary charge of a Recruitment Agency noted in this article is a huge overstatement of the fact. The average Recruitment company charge is around the 15% and getting harder to make as candidates are clinging to their desks with a tighter grip in these days of uncertainty.
    And while Linkedin is gaining in usefulness there is a costly internal HR time and opportunity cost required to research and then make contact with and then follow up with people using who have posted their profile on the site, made significantly harder by LinkedIn's efforts to monetize every contact possible.
    If nothing else the broadening candidate acquisition options today will see a greater relevance for a recruitment expertise that frankly internal HR recruitment employees just won't have the time to dedicate to the process.
    For those that see external Recruitment agencies as simply and only a cost are counting the pennies and risking the dollars.
