I have worked with Bounty Jobs on occasion. I've even made a placement through them. The challenge of Bounty Jobs is that it reinforces the "recruiter as a commodity" concept. So it's not surprising that many employers utilizing Bounty are slow in responding to candidates.
I think that Bounty is best used as an outlet for candidates from other search assignments or for positions that are a main stay of your desk. I wouldn't recommend treating any position on Bounty as a true search assignment.
Thanks for jumping in Erica. I've wondered about Bounty Jobs and would be interested to learn firsthand about your customer base.
Can you tell us what the average fee is for Bounty Jobs placements? Is that negotiated by one of your team or do they just indicate the fee they will pay?
Also - when they (clients) sign on to Bounty Jobs - is there any assurance they will not then go "outside" to an agency not in they system?
Thank you again for sharing with us. I really am interested in learning more.
