Select a specialized headhunter as your business partner. Meet with them regularly to discuss staffing and recruitment strategies and action plans. 

More is not better. Engaging more headhunters and seeing more candidates does not increase your chances in obtaining top talent. It is not good for market perception of the company and good candidates may turn away. 

Top talent are usually not looking for a job. Partner with a specialized and committed headhunter who is familiar with your company to do the selling job for you and with you. 

Manage your recruitment process well. A good process can help you attract talent but a bad one can turn them away. A headhunter is an integral part of this process and should not be used merely as a candidates provider.

Hiring is a two-way street. Some companies can become too preoccupied with what they need from the candidates and overlook what the candidates want. Unrealistic expectations of the company will lead to a prolonged and probably unsuccessful hiring process. Remember. It takes two to tango.
