A headhunter reached out to me about an opportunity and sent my book to the agency and the agency now wants to chat. Just curious how many different books does a headhunter usually shares with the agency?

I’d say it depends on what part of the process they’re in, level of experience they’re looking for, how picky the agency is, etc. If they’re casually looking or “pipelining” with no immediate need, they could be sending over a hand full a week. If they need bodies ASAP, they’re probably feeding the agency a list every few days, trying to keep candidates in for interviews. Even though you said that you’re interested, there are some people who aren’t, so they have to continue sending books over for thoughts and approval.

Hey Recruiters!
I’ve worked from the creative side to strategy to accounts to client side and have done so all over. I had to take about a year and a half long break for health reasons and am having a hard time having anyone even look at my resume. Are there ways I can show recruiters that I’m interested in settling down and building a true foundation at one company? Or is there a program (not requiring a bachelors) that can be taken to increase my network and likelihood of landing a position?
