    Default are you/your client looking for, do you/your client have

    Hi,

    Background:
    I will ask a job agency.
    I am not a research assistant nor a market researcher.
    Companies will ask the job agency to find suitable candidate for their jobs.

    Question:
    Which sentence is suitable?

    Sentence1:
    Are your clients currently looking for a research assistant or a market researcher?
    Sentence2:
    Are you currently looking for a research assistant or a market researcher?
    Sentence3:
    Do you have any vacancies for a research assistant or a market researcher?
    Sentence4:
    Do you clients have any vacancies for a research assistant or a market researcher?

    Thanks

    Any of these would do.
    I'm pretty sure that if you asked a job agency if they had any work available, they would understand that you meant do their employer clients have vacancies. This comes under 'pragmatics'.
    However, they might not understand why you are asking about vacancies for research assistants or market researchers if you are neither of these.
