9 Recruiters That Resemble Terrifying Horror Villains

With Halloween just around the corner, we thought we’d get a little bit spooky and look at 9 types of recruiters that resemble horror villains. Safe to say, you definitely wouldn’t want to bump into any of these characters!


This dark magical looney is the type of recruiter that won’t go away and never takes no for an answer. ‘Not interested’ simply doesn’t register with them.


This recruiter will lead you on a wild goose chase. They will always promise you the world. They always have a roundabout way of saying things that will leave you feeling a bit perplexed. Big waste of time!


Unfortunately, like the rest of this list, we all dread meeting this recruiter. Their constant joking around would drive you around the bend. Truly insane, this recruiter will play every trick in the book to lure you into their trap!


It’s all fun and games with this medaling maniac. At first, your dealings with this recruiter is simple child’s play. However, their good guy persona is all an act. Beware!


This recruiter tracks your every single move and knows what jobs you’ve been looking at. Don’t try to beat around the bush with these guys, because they mean business!


Regan Macneil

Usual characteristics consist of bad manners, not to mention the bad breath. This foul-mouthed character will plague you at any given time of the day. The power of Christ compels you! 

Darth Vader

The Darth Vader type recruiter always likes to be in control of the situation. It’s almost as if they know what’s best for your future…pffft. Don’t be lured to ‘the dark side’ and steer clear of this egotistical maniac.

Count Dracula

Now you see him, now you don’t! This recruiter goes AWOL and is never around at a reasonable hour when you need them most. Expect to hear a late reply! Enough to suck the life out of any poor candidate.

The Birds

Your such a talent that recruiters far and wide flock around you in search of finding your next perfect role. Next thing you know…all hell is breaking loose!
