A REMINDER as to what recruiters do and whom we work for.
I am always amazed and at the same time, dismayed by how many messages I get asking, “Please get me a job.”
That’s not what recruiters whether 3rd party or even in-house do.
It’s not. We work on behalf of hiring managers and companies to fill THEIR vacancies.
What you are seeking if you need someone to get you a job is a Career Placement Counsellor or Job Seeker Consultant (or something like that).
Not a recruiter.
Does that mean you shouldn’t reach out to recruiters?
Heavens no. Please do.
But, approach us with messages like “I am a Sales Executive with over 10 years of business development success, I was enquiring to see if you are working on any assignments that I could be considered for.” Something like that.
I can’t get you a job (how would that billing model even work?) but I can definitely consider you for a role (if you’re a good fit).
Work with me by understanding how I work first.
All the best and much success in your career search.
