Working With a Recruiter for Your Next, Best Job
When you’re looking for a new job, the first and most important thing that you can do is to send your information to a recruiter. Not just any recruiter of course, but one that you’ve sought out, who has good experience and information in the area in which you are interested is the best option.
Your IoT or IT recruiter can help you to find the job of your dreams, but there are a few things that you’re going to have to do in order to help he or she to accommodate you and the employer. When you’re considering working with a recruiter to find a job, make sure that you check them out thoroughly and that you know they are skilled and experienced in their niche area.
Send Your Information.
When you are contacted by a recruiter, if you feel that you are qualified a send a resume and information. Send them even if you’re not in the least interested in the job offer and you’ve made that very clear. Having a resume on file with the recruiter will nearly guarantee that they will call you again. Make it a remarkable resume and a good cover letter that show off your skills in the best possible light.
Never EVER Pad Your Resume.
Regardless of the temptation and even if you’re not interested, don’t pad the resume, or be less than 100 percent honest on the phone, the interview or on the paperwork. Every company and recruiter in the world has a universal loathing for anyone who is misleading them on purpose. Bear in mind that they are offering you something in good faith and that they are being paid to do a job. For you to mislead them could cost them their own credibility and that is reason aplenty for them to blackball you with every recruiter in the area.
Make it a Point to Keep in Touch
Don’t make pointless phone calls and other get in touch things, but do send an email every once in a while to be sure that you stay in touch with them, particularly if they are a good and qualified recruiter for this skill set.
