When you work with a recruiter, you trust him or her to help you land a job. However, most recruiters represent a single company, which means you may decide to continue your job search even as you go through the interview process. This helps ensure you aren't left in the lurch if the job offer never comes.
Sometimes, you may end up finding a better offer. As soon as you realize you're no longer interested in the job your headhunter is trying to help you get, you need to let him or her know. The sooner you can say you're not interested in the job, the better.
Even though it may be awkward, you need to tell a recruiter you don't want a job she helped you get. Being honest may help maintain your working relationship.
