Direct-hire recruiters are most commonly used today for higher-level positions from director-level up. Occasionally, they will be used for managers and staff in situations where the person currently in the position does not know that he or she is going to be replaced.and the company doesn't want to advertise openly, or if the position has extremely specialized requirements, such as research institutions that want people with advanced science degrees and experience with academic submissions. Otherwise, the companies will just list openly or buy subscriptions to sites like Monster and search the resumes themselves.

Possibly one misunderstanding here is the type of job itself. If you are looking for direct employment (actual employee of the company with all employee benefits), you will find few recruiters. If you are looking for contract work, then you find lots of recruiters. Companies frequently get hundreds of resumes for any single job, so they don't need to recruit except for fresh outs at the college job fair.
