Up until now, you’ve always handled your job searches alone. Eventually, you always find some type of work, but you’ve finally realized this isn’t the way to build a career. Therefore, you’ve decided to team up with a recruiter to find your next opportunity.
Your first meeting with your recruiter is right around the corner, and you want to be prepared. Here are a few tips to make a great impression and get the most from it.
Update Your Resume
No doubt, your recruiter will want to see your resume, so make sure all information is current. This will help them gain a better sense of your skills and where you’re at in your career. Failing to do so will make you appear unprofessional and can slow your search down.
Know What You Want
Your recruiter can help you find a job, but you have to lead the way. Sharing pertinent information, including your goals for the future, ideal company culture, and target employers will help your recruiter find a job that’s an all-around fit for your needs. If they’re able to get it right quickly, you’ll be in a great new job in no time at all.
The more your recruiter knows, the better equipped they are to help you. If there’s something in your past that might not look great to employers, this will eventually surface, so don’t delay. For example, if you were fired from your last job, tell your recruiter about it and share the details. This will help them best represent you to potential employers.
Recruiters hire for a living, so they know what employers want. If your recruiter doesn’t voluntarily offer up constructive criticism, request it. Their feedback can help you learn and grow, so you can become a more competitive candidate. Take full advantage of this incredible opportunity to get ahead.
