What do you charge agencies? (At each level l) I think this is a perfectly fair question to ask when we’re factoring in your salary into our offer... thoughts?

I've made anywhere from 10% to 20%, but I've heard some big staffing agencies can charge agencies 25 and even 30%. One year I only made 30k for the entire year, so don't think it's just placement after placement cha-ching! I also worked at a staffing agency where one made 38k base and then only like 4% per placement. I hated it. You're getting what ever the salary is budgeted at whether a recruiter is used or not. It's a completely different budget.

The recruiter’s cut is a different budget? That’s new and helpful info. But then why are we always told we’ll get more money if we find the job ourselves? IE don’t have to share a cut with the recruiter. Is that a complete myth?

Sorry...FOR FULL TIME, the recruiters cut is different budget. Freelance, their cut definitely cuts into yours.
