There are two core types of recruiters: those who fill positions with any available candidate, and those who source, recruit, and hire Achievers. The author defines achievers as those in the top-half of the top-half. These are people who raise a company's talent bar. Unfortunately, finding and hiring Achievers is no easy matter.
