If a recruiter regularly advertises jobs in your industry, they work in your field. Alternatively, ask some of your colleagues or friends whom they would recommend. When you have a few names, call the recruiters, say you would like to meet up and why. See how they respond to you - those who take a long-term view of their profession will respond well.

But perhaps the most effective way to find a recruiter you can network with is to choose one you met through your job search: one with whom you related well.

Keep 5 things in mind:

  1. They are Gatekeepers to jobs - you must help them to help you. Venting your anger is as silly as being aggressive on the freeway when a mug cuts you off. The exception is when they have rudely ignored numerous requests for information.
  2. Remind them who you are - most of them have woeful databases (remember there is no humongous commission incentive for keeping their filing up to date). Always start with: "I am…., and I sent you my resume last week for the .... job."
  3. Seek feedback ALWAYS.
  4. Don't expect ANYTHING - and you might be pleasantly surprised. But DO expect them to sell hard when it comes to the job offer - see box Job Offer Pressure Tactics.
  5. If all else fails, and you've been interviewed and made 3 unreturned calls… then send the 'unhappy applicant' email in the last Topic. It's a quick and very dirty way to get revenge.

After reading this book, you will know to expect the sales people in recruitment to sell hard when they have the offer of a job to present to you. Most are on 'all or nothing' commission payments and there is often no second choice candidate that they control. So, expect the hard sell.
