Working with the right recruiter can make or break your next career move. Having great recruiters in your network is key to your success, be it today or years down the road. Working with the wrong recruiter(s) can cause stress, frustration, missed opportunity and no added value. You can relate.
The key is having the right expectations, being realistic and knowing how to vet out a great recruiter from and industry standard one. Being a sales professional, it's no different than qualifying your prospects when determining where you want to spend your time, where you can provide the most value and the biggest solution to the biggest, real problem.
Don’t be afraid to qualify or interview your recruiter before working with them. Don’t just jump because they appear to have an opportunity to look at. Would you invest your time if you knew it could potentially be wasteful in the end, or worse off damage your career?
Expect a great recruiter to be no different than your clients expect from you. This is what you should expect from the best recruiters, and what you will experience with Stellis:
On the flip side, have realistic expectations with recruiters. Expect them to do what they say they will, owning their commitments to you, being honest and ethical. Be open and honest in return. Finding the right recruiter-candidate relationship can last for years, and add value well outside that one job opportunity today. Handle it appropriately.
