When you want to hire an executive, you need a specialized headhunter or recruiter. And if you are an executive job candidate, you may want one, too. These people are the matchmakers of the corporate world. Companies seek their expertise and global reach, and anyone who wants to fill a key position or move up the corporate ladder can benefit from their connections. Author Nancy Garrison Jenn's book serves two distinct purposes. The first section, which is about one-quarter of the book, deals with recruiters. Jenn explains how they work, and what they do for both employers and candidates. The second section is an extensive list of top headhunters worldwide, including contact information, sector specialists and some observations on what each firm does. Jenn's approach makes this manual very practical for anyone who needs executive search services. getAbstract recommends this book to corporations who are seeking executives, and to executives who are seeking corporations.

Gives a good overview of the high end of the Executive Search market. Executives who are looking to understand how the sector works should read this book prior to making contact with headhunters. However, the methods and structure of firms does not hold (in the main) for companies not mentioned explicitly in this book.
