A lot goes into a job search, and working with a recruiter can make all the difference. They can get you through the doors of your dream company, find you new connections, provide feedback on your resume and materials, and even give you interview coaching.
Follow These 4 Tips When Working with a Recruiter
All these benefits of a recruiter are extremely valuable. Make the most of all a recruiter can offer you, and follow these tips.
Know Your Goals
Before you begin working with a recruiter, be sure you know your career goals. Understand what type of company you want to work for, what culture is good for your personality, and what your dream position would be. Having clear, specific goals will help you and your recruiters figure out what type of job you should have.

Always Keep Your Resume Current
Another thing to do before you even meet with a recruiter is to update your resume. Make sure it is all up to date before contacting the recruiter, and throughout the process, if anything changes, update it along the way.

Follow Through with Commitments
Absolutely follow through with appointments and meetings with recruiters if one has agreed to work with you. If you don’t keep up with these meetings, it reflects poorly and may affect your relationship with them going forward.

Allow the Recruiter to Help You
Don’t hold back giving any information that may help your recruiter find you the right job. Be sure to share pertinent information so they can help you to the best of their abilities. Don’t be afraid to share job information with them, even if it’s about employment gaps or several employment positions within a short period of time.
