Headhunting is serious time bound exercise of HR Departments and they are not always successful. Here come the professional staffing concerns or job search companies into the picture. While the former follows a professional approach to provide high profile, experienced and cultured work force working in a especially niche, the latter follows a general approach.

Staffing concerns have a more automated approach and are well equipped with skill sets that help enable acquisition of specialized work force. The nook and corner based recruitment agencies or job provider companies with online presence and brick and mortar office provide candidates for line management and general tasks they rarely cater to high end professional.

Staffing agencies generally cater to niche but there are agencies which provide candidates with wide array of skill sets. The specialization depends upon the type of industry and businesses that are part of local ecosystem. Just like elements in the food chain they fulfill diverse functions.

Thus a lot depends upon the locally business environment for headhunting survival. Yes even in the era whence the world is going global and a much diversified business ecosystems exist everywhere it is local focus that leads to survival for head hunters.

But local is vocal and even potential talents trust local agencies more whether they are online or function from their cozy hides in brick and mortar establishments.

This brings us back to the question. Are all headhunters the same?

No they are not headhunting has become as specialized as the industry or business ecosystems they are catering. Thus most often agencies in same locality would be seeking a different share in the category or to looking into a specific niche.
