When searching for a new job, relationships
are the most important piece of the puzzle.
How you manage your interactions with people
has a direct impact on the value of the rela-
tionship. This logic holds true for working with
When engaging recruiters in your job search,
realise there are many nuances to a successful rela-
tionship. It is advantageous to know the Good, Better,
and Best ways to engage a recruiter and maintain
the connection long term.
EXPECTATION: Remember that you are swim-
ming upstream. Recruiters typically find candidates
to fill jobs, not find jobs for candidates (although,
there are times the candidate is a key to engaging
a new client). With this in mind, here are some
approaches to getting a recruiter s attention:
GOOD: Find recruiters on Twitter and LinkedIn
by doing simple searches and invite them into your
social network. Be sure to include something about
yourself or reference their blog---something to make
a small connection. You can also email your resume
to them with a cover letter outlining very specific
goals for your job search and what job you are seek-
ing. Keep in mind, the email subject must catch
BETTER: Network to the recruiter through a
mutual friend or colleague. Ask your friend to tell
the recruiter to expect a call from you. In many
cases, you ll get the recruiter on the line long enough
to discuss your situation and potential opportunities
down the road. Finding recruiters through friends
also helps you find ones who focus on your industry
BEST: If you really want to get a recruiter s atten-
tion, give them something they can use, like a con-
nection to a new client. You might have a neighbor
who is hiring and needs the help of a recruiter.
EXTRA CREDIT: Help them find you. Beyond
the job boards and focus groups, leverage Social
Media. Write blogs covering your area of expertise;
then tweet or send updates on LinkedIn with links
to the article. Recruiters search for certain tools,
industries, expertise and skills on the Internet all
the time---their search may lead to your blog.
MAINTAINING THE RELATIONSHIP
EXPECTATION: Once entered in their database,
realise that you are easily "resurfaced" if you have
a good resume filled with key terms. Calling a
recruiter every week to see if new opportunities
popped up is not a good idea. Nor is sending a
weekly email saying you are still on the market.
However, if your situation changes, it is good etiquette
to let them know (especially if you got a new job).
It is acceptable to maintain relationships with several
recruiters, but realise there is work to do with each:
GOOD: Watch the recruiter s job listings or sub-
scribe to the RSS feed. They will likely call you if
you are a good fit, but just in case, keep up to date.
Call if there is a legitimate match.
BETTER: Develop a little bit of a personal rela-
tionship. Tweet them once in a while about non-
job related things. Once you have a good relationship,
they may take more time to coach you on job search
BEST: Continue to provide valuable information
to the recruiter. Perhaps share an article related to
their industry. Share the names of good candidates
for jobs they are working on.
EXTRA CREDIT: Offer to write an article for
their blog if they have one. Bloggers love guest
writers and you stand a great chance of being noticed
by your recruiter s entire network.
WORKING ON AN OPPORTUNITY
EXPECTATION: Once there is an actual job for
consideration, your recruiter is fully engaged with
you. Realising that the recruiter needs to be com-
pletely aware of your thoughts on the job opportunity
will help keep everyone in synch.
GOOD: No surprises. Your recruiter should know
about your level of interest in the job, salary
expectations, other interviews, and ideal
work environment/culture. Make sure the
recruiter can accurately gauge how good of
a fit you are for the job.
BETTER: Be honest. Let the recruiter
know about gaps in employment or unique
circumstances surrounding leaving a past
job. This information will surface eventually.
Your recruiter will not be pleased if he/she
was misled about you. Their reputation is
on the line whenever they present someone.
Along the same lines, if you have already
been submitted to the company through
other means, let the recruiter know---you
do not want or need to be submitted twice.
BEST: Ask the right questions. Make
sure you are well-prepared for interviews.
A good recruiter will know the inside scoop
on the job, company, interviewers, and non-
salary benefits of working there.
EXTRA CREDIT: Share any findings
in your research you think the recruiter
may not know. A colleague of yours may
know something about the company your
recruiter does not. This information might
help both of you.
AFTER YOU GET A JOB
Once you land a new job, keep your best
recruiters in the loop. Check in with them
once in a while. After you have gotten inte-
grated in the company, see if there is an
opportunity for the recruiter to work on
new job openings. Keep providing good
candidates or potential clients. You never
know when you or a close friend will need
their assistance. Keeping that bond will
make the recruiter want to spend the time
and effort to help you down the road.
