Hi all,

Quick headhunter question:

My friend's boyfriend, who works in the IT dept. of a very prominent
national magazine, recently told me that he's broke this year because when
his headhunter placed him in the job, the headhunting firm got 25% of his
first year's salary.

I always thought that the company that hires the employee paid the
headhunter fee out of their own pocket, _not_ out of the hiree's actual
salary (even if the fee is a percentage of said salary). Did my friend's
boyfriend get shafted?

Please cc: me at aschiff -at- factset -dot- com since I get the digest. Thanks!
