Am I the fallback guy?


I’ve met with many headhunters over the years who have actively pursued me for jobs however even after a few interviews with the potential employer usually either their offer is not high enough or nothing really eventuated. What’s up with that?  

I do want to make a move if the right opportunity came along but I’m just sick of the being the fallback guy. It seems like a waste of time to go to these things. As a recruiter can you shed some light on why this is happening to me?
