Excellent podcast. Like a CPA, a good headhunter is worth their weight in gold.

I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere near the salary I received in my mid 20 to late 20s without their assistance, much less found the jobs I landed because (as Mr. Corcodilos mentions) those jobs weren’t posted on the job boards or company websites.
