It could be a daunting task to find the right recruiter for your specific needs. Don't worry; here is a quick checklist to help you seek out the best, most-appropriate recruiter for your job search.

1. Start by asking current colleagues and former co-workers with similar backgrounds as yourself who they would recommend. It is always a little tricky, as you don't want too many people at work to know that you are thinking about finding a new job.

2. In addition to the referrals, search LinkedIn to find recruiters that specialize in placing people in your field. Send an introduction and invitation to connect on LinkedIn. Once connected, see if you share any common connections. If you recognize some familiar faces, contact them and ask about their experiences with the recruiter.

3. Look at the recruiter's activity on LinkedIn. See if they posted jobs that are in line with the types of jobs that you are seeking out. Review any negative or positive comments posted about the recruiter.

4. Check if the recruiter has been with the same firm for a reasonable amount of time or if they seem to jump around a lot. If you see a lot of movement, it could be a warning sign. The constant job changes could suggest that they are moving around to find the next, hot area and really don't care about building long-term relationships with candidates. Excessive jumps could mean that they are staying one step ahead, as they may have burned bridges with corporate clients and candidates at the prior search firms. It could also demonstrate that they may be smooth talkers, get hired, but really aren't that good and quickly move on to another place.

5. Is the recruiter an expert in one or two areas and have they been doing it for a long time? It is preferable to find a recruiter who specializes, so that they really know an area well. If they have longevity, it is fair to say that they will have many contacts and clients that could help you in your search.
