    Hit me up when you graduate so I can refer you for a job and make money from it - nevermind I don't get paid for recent grad hires.

    Full time placement on retainer is the way to go (for full time).

    I've heard both ways, depending on the accommodation. Seems pretty fair, all things told. Can't make a living at 0.5%, clearly. Just say that the typical job handled by that type of agent pays a decent, but not earthshattering $200K, at 0.5%, you'd need to place 100 a year just to make six figures. That's a very low return on placing $20M worth of jobs.

    I wish people would stop using pricepoint instead of price. It's really boring technical term that I think got picked up because it sounds cooler than it is.

    If you're on retainer, the client company is often paying the recruiting company 100% of the salary of the position. Usually 1/3rd to start searching, 1/3rd when the person is hired, 1/3rd after 90 days. How much the specific recruiter makes really depends on the company they work for. This is obviously a more involved process than basic headhunting.

    Source: this is what I do for a living now (tech recruiting), though I'm currently mostly working with contracts

    I know some private equity firms pay their in-house HR people 100% of the salary of the position they're filling. That's pretty insane.
