No. I have been on their site for a year and a half. I will be an honest recruiter and tell you that I was hit hard the last two years. One placement with them is a a success in my eyes. I have had communication with firms but not a placement. As long as I get communication I will stick it out. My placements range from $30K - $50K and that fee if I get it is worth the added work on my end.
As I stated don't count your future salary off them, but if you make one placement a year I think its worth it, espcially in this economy.
Off to work!

So, have you made any placements with BountyJobs?
I have had a pleasant experience working with Bountyjobs so far. That being said, I am reserving judgement. I worked hard on several reqs that were within my niche'. I had one successful placement. I am waiting on payment that is now late. It is a significant sum.
I've passed on working on other requirements until I know for sure I will be paid. I was warned a head of time that this payment would be 7 - 10 days late. We are way passed 10 days, and I am of coarse nervous as this is the first time going through the bountyjobs process. We shall see.

This is Erica from BountyJobs. I am responsible for connecting with our users and thought I would jump in to offer my thoughts. As with anything in life, BountyJobs is what you make it. This year thousands of placements are occurring through the site and as someone who engages on a daily basis with the recruiters and employers using the site, I have to tell you that a lot of the recruiters on BountyJobs are taking on these job requisitions on as serious sourcing assignments. This is evident as many Fortune 100 companies have been able to fill jobs (quickly) on BountyJobs; jobs that they had previously deemed unable to fill as the reqs had been open for 6+ months.
I'm glad to talk candidly about the BountyJobs marketplace, as it isn't perfect. Please reach out to me if you'd like to discuss.
Rob: I think you bring up an excellent point. As you can imagine, our business very much depends upon headhunters/ search firms thriving and being seen as the source to get top talent and passive candidates. We very much strive to create technology that enables the enhancement of relationships and fights commoditization that occurs any time you take formal relationships and make them virtual. Would you be open to chatting? I'd love to hear your insights and better understand what creates the commodity impression.
