A good recruiter will also understand a candidate's career goals, background, motivations, and intangible needs. They can look past resumes and job descriptions and bring common sense, expertise, and a human touch to the job search process.

Like any profession, there are some recruiters that perpetuate a lot of negative stereotypes. Sometimes recruiters will never follow up or they'll send you roles that are clearly not a good fit. If you encounter these, consider them red flags.

Anyone can call themselves a recruiter without knowing much about the jobs they're recruiting for. Or they might not have the business sense to set expectations and follow up with job seekers. That's why it's important for job seekers to understand what it's like to work with a recruiter. And you should always do your homework on recruiters you meet!

  • Keep your search confidential instead of sending your resume out into the void.
  • Similarly, recruiters are a direct conduit to the employer for your application, complete with recommendation and references
  • Tell you about unposted opportunities (as you've heard from Mac,
  • Provide insight into where you stand compared to other candidates interviewing for a position.
  • Differentiate opportunities (and give you the unposted details on a role).
