15 Tips For Working With A Recruiter
We’ve put together the following pointers on how to get the most out of working with a recruiter and how to help us find the best job opportunity for YOU.
- Send a resume. When you contact or are contacted by a recruiter, send a resume and other requested information, even if you make it clear that you are not interested in a current
opportunity. Having your resume on file will make it more likely that the recruiter will call you again. If there are special circumstances surrounding your job search, tell your recruiter. These professionals deal with hundreds of applicants and understand discretion. If you are seriously interested in getting a new job, you shouldn’t be afraid to send out your resume. After all, the whole point of using a recruiter is to gain access to opportunities you would miss on your own.
- Focus. Set aside time to work on one thing, instead of trying to cover all things at once.
- Organize. Divide your goals into smaller tasks, achieving success one step at a time as you progress toward the big goal.
- Maximize your day. Pay attention to your physical and mental energy levels during the day and schedule tasks at those peak times.
- Find efficiencies. Look for ways of doing repetitive tasks better and faster.
- Troubleshoot. Keep watch for potential pitfalls and work through possible problems as soon as you can.
- Be honest. Get clear about what you want and what you can handle and then use good communication skills to relay that to others.
- Stay consistent. Don’t be afraid to say no to things that are not in line with your priorities.
- Finish what’s important. Work hard to reach meaningful goals and don’t let unnecessary actions distract you or get in the way.
- Stay calm. Some bumps in the road are unavoidable. Don’t get mad or give up. Dust yourself off, adjust your plan and carry on
