Tips for Working with a Recruiter

SpineSearch wants all of our candidates to have the best chance of finding a job they love. As a candidate, working with a recruiter can really improve your chances of getting the right job. Candidates want to look for a recruiter that specializes in their field; this ensures that you will only be getting calls about jobs that pertain to your line of work.

The candidate should also be aware that the recruiter’s work is to find the right fit for the employer. Even though you interview for the job, it does not mean that you will get the job. Still, you want to interview for any position that interests you. Just because one employer does not think you are the right fit for the job, does not mean that every employer will think that.

You should have goals for yourself but be flexible. Don’t apply to jobs that are asking for experience you don’t have. You may go on a lot of interviews, but this will be crucial towards you finding a job. Candidates should also be honest and accessible with their recruiter. You should put your best foot forward while looking for a new job.

The most important thing to remember is: don’t get lazy. The recruiter wants to help you find work, but it is not their responsibility to do all of the work for you. When you go on interviews the recruiter won’t be there to make sure you brought your resume or wore an appropriate outfit. You must use the recruiter as a middle man between you and the employer. At SpineSearch we pre-screen all of our candidates before sending them to the employer. Candidates are able to get a good sense of what the employer is looking for, and the recruiter can give feedback to the employer about the candidate.
