If you're working with the right recruiter they should know a lot about your industry.

An experienced recruiter will have the inside track on who is and isn't hiring, what employers are currently looking for, and what types of roles and organizations you should target.

Insider knowledge like this is incredibly helpful.

You should expect a good recruiter to be upfront and honest with you, proving you with an accurate assessment of your strengths, gaps and chances of landing your ideal job.

It's helpful to understand how realistic your expectations are, what kind of salary and benefits you can likely achieve and what level of competition you'll face.

One of the great benefits of working with a recruiter is the support you'll receive during the interview process. You should make the most of this.

Interview preparation is something that any good recruiter should be able to help you with. Good interview preparation can make all the difference!

Speak to your recruiter to find out as much as you can about who will be interviewing you, what kind of interview style the company prefers to use and what kinds of questions you are likely to be asked.

If your recruiter seriously believes that you have a chance at securing the position, they will want to take the time to run you through some practice questions and provide you with feedback.

Remember if you get the job, they get paid.

As soon as the interviews are over, the recruiter will be on the phone with the hiring manager asking for feedback. You should expect them to pass this feedback on to you.

When you apply to a role directly, you often won't receive feedback after an interview. A recruiter, however, will always get feedback and should always pass this on to you.

Honest interview feedback is incredibly helpful in your job search process.

Negotiating your own salary is awkward. It's usually unclear how far you can push a company to increase an offer.

On the flip side, a recruiter will know what salary band is on offer plus what benefits should and could form part of your package.

A recruiter will also know where there might be flexibility, such as offering a one-off sign-on bonus, a car allowance or relocation support.

Don't forget that your recruiter needs you to accept an offer, it's also in their interest to get you the highest possible salary.
