Are all contract/recruiters the devil ?--
Hey Ms Smart,
I went to an anime convention over the weekend. After doing Q and A with many different voice actors I noticed a lot of them said they had agents which helped connect them to audition and jobs with different companies.
I even asked one of them if they were worried that their agent was taking to big of a cut from there work profits but they said they felt the 15% or 20% their agent was getting was fair.
Looking at this for my own job hunting life. I have thought about working with a work recruiting firm in the past also. but based off of what I have learned from your blog and other resources it seems like the recruiting contract companies are all very shady and taking way bigger cuts from the salaries than they tell you.
But this does lead to a problem because if most recruiting companies are bad for the workers. But most companies work with recruiting companies only or exclusively. How do I get hired?
So far my only strategy has been to apply to the companies directly but is this even being seen or are these companies most likely ignoring direct applicants and only looking at there work recruiter applicants.
