How to Have a Healthy Relationship With Your RecruiterNovember 20, 2015
Working with a recruiter is exciting and an amazing opportunity for you to grow in your professional career. Being recruiters ourselves, we are thrilled when we find the perfect match between candidates and employers. However, in order for us to be able to find the perfect match for both candidates and employers, we have to have a healthy relationship. Having a healthy relationship builds the foundation for future success. But what does having a healthy recruiter relationship really mean?
The most important factor in having a healthy recruiter relationship is honesty. We need you to be completely, totally, 100%, unapologetically honest. Tell us exactly what you want and why you want it. The more specific you are with us, the better opportunities we can present you. Candidates, honesty is especially important. It is essential that you are honest when it comes to your resume and your motives. Don’t embellish your responsibilities or overstate your successes. Tell us what exactly your goals and expectations are for the future. Let us know why you’re looking for a career change – we won’t judge you or neglect you – it will help us provide you the best opportunities and find the perfect match for you!
The second most important factor in having a healthy recruiter relationship is trust. We have over 50 years of industry experience – we know the landscape and have experience with every type of candidate and employee. Trust that we will be able to find you the perfect match. It may not happen overnight, but we know it will happen eventually. Let us do our magic in producing the perfect candidate or employer. Trust us that we know what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. We have a proven track record of success – after all, we are one of the oldest and most successful staffing firms in the Southwest! So sit back, relax, and trust that we will deliver on our promises and provide quality customized service.
Lastly, make sure you follow up with us and give us feedback. If you had an interview that went amazing and the candidate or employer was everything you’ve ever dreamed of, let us know! This helps us in the future should you decide to pursue other options. Giving us feedback helps us determine exactly what you’re looking for and what you want – both candidates and recruiters. On the other end of the spectrum, if an interview didn’t go as well as planned, we still want to know! Understanding what you don’t want and what you aren’t looking for helps us eliminate options and narrow it down to find you exactly what you do want. We won’t be offended and we will appreciate your honesty!
Having a healthy recruiter relationship is vital for success. Be honest with us, trust us, and give us feedback. Taking these steps will ensure that you are satisfied with your experience. For all your staffing needs, check us out our website!
