Can using a job recruiter hurt my chances with an employer?

Using a job recruiter can help you find a new job, but it can also be harmful. The most important thing to remember when you are working with a recruiter is whether they are professional. An unprofessional job recruiter will collect resumes, and this can result in resumes being tossed around and not handled properly. There is sensitive information on your resume, and you want to protect them as though they are your an extension of yourself.
