What is the role of a job recruiter in job placement?

The job recruiter plays a vital role in the process of job placement for a company. Job recruiters work for companies exclusively or they can work for multiple companies at once. The job recruiter gets orders from a company about the type of position that they need filled. Then the recruiter goes out into the market place and tries to find qualified applicants for the job. The recruiter has to be able to save the company time and resources by finding applicants that have a good shot at getting the job. If the recruiter fills the position, they get a commission for the service.
