You usually have more opportunity to earn more at an agency because you earn commission, but I imagine you can still do very well in house at big 4. I work at a regional mid-sized firm as an in-house recruiter and make $80k (4 years experience).

Recruiters at Big 4 and 2nd Tier Nationals have all been commoditized. Just ask anyone in Transaction Services and Audit recruiting.

good recruiters can do very well. my wife works 30-35 hours a week and has pulled in north of $200k for 3 years in a row - she’s not an accounting / finance recruiter though.

the cream of the crop at her company regularly pull in north of $500k annually.

I chose the wrong career.
