Help with Recruiters (aka, Understanding Recruiters)

Last week I posted about how job seekers ask for about recruiters without really knowing what they are asking for: Job Search Tip: Asking The Wrong Question in Networking

Then I followed up with what to do when you meet a recruiter: Networking with Recruiters

I came across a terrific series of posts by Jeff Lipschultz about working with recruiters… here are some other excellent posts written by Jeff:

Building and Maintaining Strong Relationships with Recruiters

Not-So-Secret Weapon – Recruiters

Recruiters in the job search?  Yes… but not understanding who they are and what they do (and who they work for) will make it seem that recruiters are a dead end.

How’s your executive resume?  If you aren’t getting any calls back after you share or submit your resume, it might be doing you more harm than good.  My resume was keeping me out of interviews.  Contact Career Resumes for a free resume review.

    Thanks so much Jason for sharing my posts. It is so important that everyone know there role in the job search.
    The job seeker owns the process, no doubt. The supporting cast includes networking groups, professional resume writers/career coaches, family, social media forums, and of course, recruiters. Recruiters are a link to opportunities, but only when the situation is right and a process is followed. Knowing these details makes all the difference in that relationship!
