How does recruiting via headhunters work for comp?
Can someone explain how headhunters take their pay cut and what sort of pay cut they take (% of salary, flat fee after helping you land a role, etc.)? Suppose I get hit up on LinkedIn/ email by a headhunter for an opportunity, I take the interview and land the gig. Do I pay the headhunter for connecting me to my new firm, or does the firm pay the headhunter for helping hire me? Let's say all in PE Aso 1 comp is $300k, so does that mean they take 10% off the gross? Or would I keep all the gross and the firm pays the headhunter for their work? Thanks!
