I haven't used a recruiter in hiring or for finding a job, but I have
observed that some companies avoid them to keep their costs low (to
avoid fees to recruiters).  However, I've seen other management teams
that seem to prefer or rely on them to fill positions.  So, I think
depending on the hiring company's culture, the route to getting hired
may be through a recruiter.

I'm curious what others have to say that have more experience with
them.  I know there are one or two on the list.
