Careers We Didn't Realize Were Actual Careers

From the Times coverage of Obama's heroic hostage rescue:

Jamey Cummings, another former member of the Seals who is now an executive headhunter, said most Seal platoons of 16 had at least two snipers who were essential to the tactics of the group. “It’s a common misperception that Seals like to sneak up on people and use knives on them,” he said. “If you have to do that, the mission was probably not planned that way.”

We're wondering exactly what "executive headhunter" means here.

Love the new Seals uniform you have come up with! And they should all have a rubber head to carry around during the first few weeks of training, too, just to have the full effect of the kind of work they will be doing!
