Opportunities for external recruiters

That's the same type of transition titles in our profession are going through, the good news is as these titles keep changing and growing with the different segments of the profession it opens opportunities for you.

The better you understand the types of firms, the easier it will be for you to determine what type of job is best for you. Now, let's start out with the boutique firm.
