What is a Recruiter?

What is a recruiter? There are all different kinds of recruiters.There are ones that work for candidates and help place them in jobs. Then thereare ones that work for clients and help find candidates.

Some of the pros about working with a recruiter is they haveinside knowledge of the companies and have developed personal relationshipswith the hiring managers. So, if they believe in you as a candidate, they willpush you through the process. They work on commission, so they want you to getthe job as much as you want it.

The cons? Not everyone is great at their job. Statically speakingthe industry has 200% turn over and most people don’t stay at one company forover a year. So, a lot of recruiters aren’t great at what they do, because theysimply aren’t trained well. Lucky for me I have been with my company 3 yearsand have been promoted to a Senior Recruiter and Manager. I train new recruitersand I can tell you that not everyone has the natural people skills to seethrough a hire.

However, there are also extremely talented recruiters that trulymake a difference in people’s lives. Overall, I say talk to your recruiter andtry to develop a relationship with them. If it feels right, it probably is. Ifit feels off, they probably aren’t the right recruiter for you.
