Default Jobs without recruiters?

I've notices from this board that you all talk about recruiters and it makes me think are there any jobs posted directly from employers?

Rarely. Most of the job postings are from recruiters/staffing agencies. The employers prefer it that way because the recruiters do pre screening and from hundreds of people applying for a job they choose 3-4 job seekers to go to the interview. Some big companies have their own HR people on staff but in most cases there is a recruiter...

There are jobs posted directly of course, but in my experience most good jobs in IT are through recruiters. I don't like this, because recruiters make 20% to 100% on top of the contractor's hourly rate for basically doing nothing, but that's the way it is.

For a permanent position the recruiters get from the employer one time fee. For a contract position is different - they get an extra on every hour you get paid. If you make $20 per hour, they probably get another $10 overhead. But most of the jobs are through recruiters any way

I do see alot of companies advertising for themself, but most of the time they expect such an influx of applications that the recruiter is used as the middle man.

I dont know about the recruiter getting part of your hourly wage, I thought they just get a one off commission when they hire you?
