Design recruiter

Postby help » January 20th, 2005, 11:05 am

Does anybody know any good Industrial design recruiter websites? they are so many I don't really know who to choose. I'm looking for a nationwide (usa) design recruiting website where I can give my resume too and get good result.

I've had good luck with Aquent. They have offices set up all over the country.

Same here and I"m in graphic design. I feel they are pretty much focussed on temp placement and production type people right now.

That's true. I've never secured a staff position through a recruiter. Just kept getting temp jigs until I found a full-time position by simply replying to an ad.

My advise would be to try as many different design recruiters as possible, so that more than just one person is looking for you.
Also, try some of the lesser known sites like You would be suprised how many design jobs are simply listed in the newspaper.[/quote]

From my truely little experience with recruiters... they tend to find you.

From time to time I get these call from people telling me that they were told to call me about an ID job. (I am pretty sure that they are just seeing a profile of me on coroflot or monster or something)

Other than that, I have had little luck. Check out Rita Sue.

It's been my experience that almost all design recruiters give virtually no feedback from or about anything submitted to them even when the submission references a specific job listing with specific and seriously good credentials. They rarely return phone calls and almost never take them. The answering assistant (if there is one) almost has a scripted answer to they effect ... "Let's be quick. Thanks for calling. We'll look at your resume. If we have anything that might interest you, maybe we'll call. Don't bother to call us"
The recruiters must be extremely busy and successful, or overwhelmend by the volume of internet resume postings coming their way. Or maybe my submissions really do suck, though I've never been unemployed.
Anyone else have thoughts or experience?
