Are there any advantages to working with headhunters as opposed to internal recruiters (assuming the agency is already interested)?

If the agency is already interested in you without a headhunter, you shouldn’t use a headhunter.

In my experience, a headhunter doesn’t place you as a full time employee the same way. You’re their employee, and you might get treated as a contractor by the company. NOT ALWAYS for sure, but it’s something to clarify.

I know! But sometimes it’s treated the same by the headhunter. Just a heads up. I try to avoid them when I can
