Good series of videos! the only thing to keep in mind is...that there are 2 types of recruiters that I can think of. The ones that are a recruiting agency and the ones who work at the company you are applying for. The ones who work for a recruiting agency the are going to try to get you the hightest $$$ they can from the company they are doing the recruitment for. Why? because the majority of those recruiters get paid a % of your salary. So...more money for you, more money for them

Thanks for the encouragement Pato!

Working with an external recruiter can be helpful, both for negotiation and the connections to companies if you're having a hard time finding places to apply to or get your foot in the door.
