I'm trying to explain with a metaphor what a recruiter is.
In Dutch a propper would be a good fit. A "propper" is a nightclub / disco promoter. Someone who is paid to lure people inside often with false promises an slick talks.
What would be a good single word to convey this exact same profession? I feel like promotor might not have the same "load" / negative association as it's Dutch counterpart has.
edit: They are not the same as hustlers, as hustlers do something illegal and both recruiters and proppers do not (although they show annoying behaviour).
