A second option is the exclusive search approach. This is more of a collaborative search, where the company and the recruiter work together to locate and attract the person who is rightly suitable for the job. The 'exclusive' part of the agreement is just that the position is exclusive to the search professional and cannot be filled by any other source during the exclusive period. Every search should be original and every search, if done right, should take some time. Typically for this selection, the recruiter knows that their time spent digging into the marketplace is time well spent. The end result is almost always a more successful and pleasing experience for everyone involved. When people work together for a common goal and both parties have a vested interest, the success rate and quality of outcome will be more qualitative. Companies will typically request an exclusive search when they are looking to fill a senior position and sometimes when all other cheaper search options have been exhausted.
