6. The employer needs to hire a talent with rare skills

In some of cases, some employer are looking a talent not based on their working experiences, but based on skill set they have. Some of them are rare and some of them only can be found oversea. It is like searching for needle in haystack. Only a Headhunter with broad network and powerful search tools that might help you with this kind of request.

7. Confidential recruitment: You want to hire a manager who are still in position

The employer has assessed the Manager who are still in position and find him/ her underperform. The employer does not want the internal team to know this issue and need an external party to execute the recruitment process. Therefore, a Headhunter service is needed to help the employer to find a suitable talent for this position. ​ By Kessler Executive Search
