Typically, a manager who needs to hire someone will undergo an approval process. The company management must agree to the salary and benefits overhead costs and the cost of the hiring and onboarding process.

Once the position has been approved, the company will turn to either an in-house corporate recruiter or a headhunter from an outside agency to find the best talent. Which type of recruiter is used depends on the organization and its hiring policy.

Next, either the hiring manager, the recruiter, or both will write the job description. The recruiter will typically have a background in human resources and will help the hiring manager include the necessary skills and not ask for too much bearing in mind the job level and the salary offered. Market forces play a role here because any company looking to hire full-time talent faces competition from other companies seeking the right person.

Candidates tend to focus on impressing the hiring manager and don't take the recruiter quite as seriously when considering a new job. However, the recruiter is the first hurdle they must clear. Here are some tips on meeting recruiter needs and moving on to the next round in the hiring process.

  • Show that you meet the minimum qualifications.

  • Use metrics and examples to validate your accomplishments.

  • Submit a tailored resume and cover letter.

  • Optimize your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile with keywords.

  • Show enthusiasm during the phone interview.

  • Email a thank you note to the recruiter after your phone interview.

Although corporate recruiters and agency recruiters may have different goals regarding hiring rates and retention, at the end of the day, their processes for sourcing and screening candidates are similar. Now you know the way to a good recruiter's heart, you can take your pick of the job offers that should land in your lap while the job market is hot.
