Packed full of useful information, tips, and techniques, I can honestly say, after twenty-eight years in this business, this book is the best I have read on the subject of job change and working with 'headhunters.' A must read."

Darrell Gurney's Headhunters Revealed! made understanding the role of the headhunter and how to use a headhunter simple...something most other texts didn't do.
