Classic recruitment for top management positions began to be replaced by head hunting, which, although requires a greater financial effort from the client, is an investment with quick payback. If at the beginning, this headhunting, was practiced mostly by big corporations, who knew that the company's success are the employees with valuable experience, smaller firms now seem to resort to this kind of selection of personnel. Method called "head hunting” is more than a process, is the art to highlight existing opportunities and put them in direct relationship to experience, work of some persons concerned, so they may decide in favor of changing job, in most cases to a rival company.
