Here's a good article about the process that headhunters go through on a retained search. Please note that there are many different levels of recruiting that goes on for companies, and the retained search might be used for the more senior positions. While this may not be relevant on your first job search, it's going to happen to you at some point (you WILL be contacted by a retained executive/scientific search firm).

Thanks Dave. These steps are not that different from direct industry hiring either. Maybe skip a few of the repetitive steps, but this is pretty much how our company hires as well.
