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.

Recruiters also actively seek or "source" qualified candidates who are not applying to job postings. Passive candidates are already employed, but they can be "poached" by other employers, particularly if they possess rare skills or the job market is tight.

Many people have their resumes already saved on job posting websites like LinkedIn, Indeed, and CareerBuilder. Recruiters can use software to search these sites for people that have the skills and qualifications they are looking for.
