Ep 132: Recruiters Care and… - with Ben Martinez
Show Notes

Recruiters work for the hiring managers that pay the bills, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help with your career and job search.

  • Be specific on what you want next in your career and job. If you look at a sense of purpose and the bigger picture, it will get you farther.
  • Most recruiters care more about their work and quality of life, than just making money on placements. Many times they may talk a candidate out of a job it seems for the wrong reason. 

They will want you to consider them as a choice recruiter when you need help or have a talent problem.

  • It’s best to keep the interview process simple with no more than 4 interviews to decide. Too many hiring managers overcomplicate the process and make it harder.  Help them by not rescheduling interviews - keep your appointments.
  • Your reputation matters to the recruiters you want as your advocate with hiring managers.
