Helpful Tips When Working With a Recruiter

Your recruiter is your career advocate…. Here are some tips that may be helpful in creating a meaningful partnership with your recruiter:

  • Build a professional relationship

    Treat recruiters as your colleague and build a relationship with them. This can help in establishing trust and making them more invested in your job search.

  • Be clear about your job preferences

    Tell recruiters what kind of job and company you are looking for, and what your salary expectations are. This can help them match you with suitable job openings and avoid wasting time on irrelevant ones.

  • Be responsive and proactive

    Respond to recruiters in a timely manner and keep them updated on your job status. Also, reach out to them between job opportunities to stay top of mind.

  • Follow through with commitments

    If you agree to a job interview or provide them with your resume, follow through with those commitments in a timely manner.

  • Ask for feedback

    If a recruiter doesn’t have any job openings suitable for you, ask them for feedback on your resume or interview skills. This can help you improve and be better prepared for future job opportunities.

  • Stay in the loop

    Follow them on their social media platforms in order to stay in the loop. You can also subscribe to their emails to hear about their latest openings.
