Building a relationship with your recruiter is one of the most important, and potentially lucrative things that you can do. A respectable recruiter understands your skillset and will contact you when a job becomes available. A recruiter in which you have built a relationship with not only understands what you do, but also knows what you are looking for in your next position and can be an asset to your career for many years to come.
Be open and inform your recruiter of additional factors that would play a part in your decision making of accepting a position. Some candidates are looking for a challenging project and would be willing to travel while some would prefer a comfortable role right in their backyard.
Helping your recruiter to understand what really drives you will go a long way in ensuring that they are looking out for your best interests in the market will bring you the right role, the first time. When is the best time to do this, you ask? Today! So, give us a call and Happy New Year!
