Are you looking for a job change? Recruiters reach out to you with a job profile, some background on what the prospective employers want and maybe some key areas you should highlight in your interview so that you may secure the new job.
But then there are a lot of things they don’t tell you and these matter. I hit upon an article shared on Linkedin which was really nice and relevant and I am sure it can improve your chances, rather probability to strike your dream job.
10 Things Recruiters Won’t Tell You
Recruiters have one job: Find the right person for the position.
Their performance is evaluated on how efficiently and effectively they match top talent to job requirements.
Ironically, in the current economy, recruiters are finding their jobs harder than ever.
There’s too much talent for them to weed through. What used to be “finding a needle in a haystack” has now become “finding a needle in ten haystacks.”
As a result, recruiters have to determine a candidate’s marketability much quicker.
Translation: Candidates must pay even more attention to the power of the first impression factor.
People skills, attire, etc. all become more important when competition amongst talent is this fierce.
Reality check: Those who are failing to make a good first impression get put in the “no” pile and are never contacted again.
So, if you aren’t getting called back by a recruiter after either an in-person meeting or talking by phone, there’s a good chance that, in addition to the fact you didn’t have the right skills, you also might have displayed one or more traits on the “I can’t market them” list.
Now, most recruiters won’t tell you what you did wrong.
