Answers to our most common questions

With any type of change, questions are expected. The list below is what we get asked consistently and please contact us with any other questions.

Do I get to work directly with the recruiter?

Yes. HeadRace believes that the best recruiting relationships are strongly interpersonal and require direct and frequent communication. Therefore, HeadRace encourages direct communication between employers and recruiters.

What if I don’t like my recruiter?

We understand that not all matches are perfect. If you don’t like your recruiter for any reason, we have many others to select from across a wide variety of quality and price ranges.

How does HeadRace get data on recruiter’s historical performance?

Track records are a crucial component in understanding a Recruiter’s ability to serve your needs well. By using  HeadRace to fulfill their back-office needs and to transact with Clients more easily, Recruiters create a verifiable record of their performance and their business.  This data allows Recruiters to market their offering more easily to Employers and also allows Employers to have more confidence in knowing a match fits their needs.

How are payments handled?

All payments are facilitated through the HeadRace platform and appropriately remitted to your recruiters of choice. 1099s only need to be issued to Headrace Technologies, Inc. We handle the tax forms for your recruiters.

Do Recruiters on HeadRace keep more of my fees paid to them?

Yes, a lot more. Recruiters at big recruiting companies typically only keep 20-50% of the fees paid to them. The rest goes to corporate overhead and equity partner profits. Independent Recruiters on the HeadRace platform keep 80-100% of fees.
