It can be difficult trying to find the right recruiter to work with. Here are some things to look for:
1) A good recruiter will reach out, saying they like your experience and mention they have a few roles that might be a good fit.
2) Great recruiters will point out some things on your LinkedIn or resume and talk about how they company they are recruiting for would be very interested in having a conversation.
3) The best recruiters get to know you. They listen, keep notes, stay in touch for when the perfect opportunity comes around. Then they make introductions with the candidates’ interest in mind.
Good recruiters talk a lot. Great recruiters listen. The best recruiters challenge and ask questions.
