It's voyeurism if there is any glory. You're serving a basic function that companies only kinda sorta need. Could they find the right exec themselves? Definitely. You are a "nice to have,” not a "must have"… unless the market is crazy for executive weaponry and that doesn't happen all that often - certainly not in most industries. But to the people for whom you find jobs, you are glorious. They will feel that they "owe you.” We see a free rib dinner in your future.
