Working with a recruiter can be intimidating, here are a few tips on what you should and shouldn’t do to prepare. 

Research

  • Before meeting with a recruiter, take the time to understand their process. When you’re ready to meet, have a set of questions arranged. Depending on the answers, you’ll know right away whether he or she is the right fit for you.
  • Come to your first meeting with an updated resume and LinkedIn profile, a list of accomplishments, notable projects, and reasons for a change.

Form a Bond

  • Experienced recruiters can offer all kinds of benefits – from resume advice and interview prep, to new job opportunities and salary negotiations. Building a strong rapport with your recruiter is crucial to your job search success.
  • Get comfortable: Meet to discuss your career ambitions. Be straightforward and honest about the job opportunities that interest you, and the ones that don’t.
  • Be prepared to learn: BullsEye Recruitment provides personalized resources, skill development training, and support to help you land the perfect position.
  • Learn how things work: Ask about the steps of placement, representation and the expected on-going communication. Know what to expect in the beginning, so there are no hard feelings or miscommunication.

Act Professionally

  • Always put your best foot forward, even if you don’t get your dream job right away.
  • Be polite: If you don’t get the job offer you were hoping for, always thank the hiring manager and keep the door open for future possibilities.
  • Don’t criticize or lose your cool: A negative outlook can affect your relationship with your recruiter and potentially impact your odds of getting that next great opportunity.
