Headhunters are third-party agents paid a fee by companies for locating job candidates perform a unique sales role. The product they sell is people, matching candidates with jobs and companies with candidates. Headhunters affect the professional lives of thousands of employees every day, and their work has a profound, though hidden, effect on the employment picture in the United States. William Finlay and James E. Coverdill draw on interviews with and observations of headhunters and on analysis of headhunting training seminars, lectures, industry newsletters, and a mail survey of headhunting firms. The result is a frank and sometimes unsettling portrait of the aims, attitudes, and tactics of practitioners. The payment of fees has shifted from candidates to employers, and recruiters now find people to fit jobs rather than the other way around. Finlay and Coverdill address what they feel is a serious lack of research about the work headhunters do and how they do it. Their book is built around three major questions: What advantages do employers derive from using third-party agents to handle candidate search and recruitment? How are headhunters able to accomplish the double sale ('selling' candidates to employers and employers to candidates)? What criteria do headhunters use for selecting candidates? In the process, Finlay and Coverdill link their findings to larger issues of institutional and historical context, revealing the economic and political reasons clients use headhunters, demonstrating how headhunters manipulate clients and candidates, and assessing the impact of headhunters' actions on hiring decisions.
The Headhunting Business is the first detailed investigation of executive search in Britain: the recruitment of senior-level businessmen and women by intermediaries acting on behalf of client companies, popularly known as 'headhunters'. Sweeping aside the popular mythology surrounding headhunting, this book analyses exactly how the business works in practice. Dr Jones has interviewed hundreds of executive search consultants, their clients and candidates, producing an in-depth anatomy of this vital business service, now employed by up to 90 per cent of major British companies, which hardly existed a decade ago. Dr Jones argues that the top end of the market includes a number of high-powered, top-quality, creative consultants and reputable and highly professional firms offering a valuable resource to their clients. The Headhunting Business looks at: 'The Economics of Search'; 'The Emergence and Growth of the Headhunting Business '; 'The Nature of Headhunting in Britain in the 1980s'; 'Client and Candidate Experiences of Headhunting', based on an extensive, specially designed survey; 'The Headhunting Process'; 'Three Headhunting Case Studies'; 'The Global Scene', including a section on headhunting in Europe; 'Headhunting in the Future'; with an appraisal of leading executive search firms in Britain, and Hints on How to be Headhunted. It also contains a glossary of jargon and common expressions in use in the headhunting world today and a detailed bibliography of books, articles and relevant on-line material.
The Headhunter is the story of the transformation of the protagonist, Tilman Fischer, from corporate headhunter to assassin of corporate criminals. He and a small group of like-minded philanthropists are concerned that so few of the most malignant overlords of the global economy, and their political sycophants, are ever brought to justice. For the sake of humanity, justice must be brought to them. That noble calling becomes the group's all-encompassing commitment, and Tilman's hope for personal redemption.
A witty yet serious treatment of the fables and foibles of corporate life provides psychological profiles of corporate character types, analyzes how executives become incompetent, and portrays the corporate headhunter in pursuit of high-level quarry.

"Selected in 2005 by the Army to be the first airborne reconnaissance squadron, 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, better known as 5-73 CAV, was formed from 3rd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment. The members of the squadron were hand-selected by the squadron command team, Lieutenant Colonel Poppas and Command Sergeant Major Edgar. With just more than 400 paratroopers, they were half the size of a full-strength battalion and the smallest unit in the Panther Brigade. The squadron deployed to eastern Diyala in August, 2006. Despite their size, they were tasked with an enormous mission and were given the largest area of operations within the brigade. Appropriately for a unit known by the call sign of its CO—Headhunter—5-73 would go on to pursue various terrorist factions including Al Qaeda in Iraq. They got results, and 5-73 was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for launching the Turki Bowl campaign from November 2006 to January 2007 against insurgent groups in Diyala Province. However the toll would be heavy—the squadron lost twenty-two paratroopers during the deployment Headhunter is a unique account of the War on Terror. It’s a soldier’s story, told by those very paratroopers who gallantly fought to tame Diyala. Based on dozens of interviews conducted by the author, the narrative describes the danger of combat, the loss of comrades and the struggles of returning from a deployment. The voice of the families left behind are also included, describing ther challenges they faced, including the ultimate challenge—grappling with the death of a loved one. This book explores the human dimensions of loss and struggle and illustrates the sacrifices our service members and their loved ones make."
