What can you do to maximize your collaboration with a recruiter?
“You are going to receive as much as you give. When collaborating with recruiter, job seekers need to put their best foot forward, if they are truly eager to collaborate. It is a competitive market with many job seekers and technology aiding the hiring process. Responsiveness, professionalism, and a well-prepared resume are the bare minimum in collaborating with a recruitment firm. It remains an ongoing relationship of give and take, and just as the recruiter is obligated to actively listen and properly respond to ambitious candidates, candidates must maintain an open line of communication to facilitate putting their best foot forward.” Justin Orleans, Assistant Vice President with Robert Half Canada.
