Q: A headhunter convinced me to interview for what sounded like a perfect job. But after a series of interviews, I’m losing interest. The headhunter’s promises turned out to be false and now I’m angry.

A: Forget about it. Outside of some wasted time, no harm was done. And you learned a lesson: Never trust a headhunter who dangles specifics such as pay and benefits. The only person in a position to discuss compensation is the one who’s hiring. The best executive search consultants will not recruit you for the wrong job just to satisfy their client.
