Random question for anyone here... has anyone had success with recruiters? Specifically finding recruiters to work with and then landing a job via a recruiter? I seem to be running into trouble finding a good recruiter. I am in the marketing field with specific interest in writing -- so business communications, copy writing, copy editing etc. Any leads anyone?

I've never used a recruiter personally but I have heard mixed reviews from people who have.

Sonya, Job recruiters are indeed paid by the company looking for an employee and they are there to help and guide you. I have a lead . It is called Job cases. You register on line and people seeking copywritersm bloggers, proof readers , content writers, editors, etc. Contact you on line. They work part time or full time. Pay hourly and post what they need help with. You post your information, pay expectations, and resume and see how it goes. It has worked out for me a few times and you can do it from home on your own computer. . Let me get the correct sit for you and I'll get right back to you. Lisa Renwick

Hi Sonya,

You should definitely be open to working with Recruiters. The main reason is that they do not get paid unless they find you a job. The employers pays for them to hire employees like yourself. As long as you find a few strong Recruiters, it should really help. Trying contacting some of the larger Recruiting firms and let them know what you are looking for. A lot of times they have divisions for specific industries.

Best of luck! -Mark

My job position in completely different from yours.

My job is industrial, and depends on the necessity of a position. The majority of the jobs I've applied for took time to get an approved interview, and varied depending on the amount of applications they receive, since their are a lot of applications a recruiter has to view and approve.

P.S: I've also received (Aflac) emails, but I'll recommend you to avoid them. Because the majority of the time they are pyramid schemes.

I had success with recruiters, but I've kept declining their offers.
