    Ep 132: Recruiters Care and… - with Ben Martinez

    Ep 132: Recruiters Care and… - with Ben Martinez

    Recruiters work for the hiring managers that pay the bills, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help with your career and job search.
    Be specific on what you want next in your career and job. If you look at a sense of purpose and the bigger picture, it will get you farther.Most recruiters care more about their work and quality of life, than just making money on placements. Many times they may talk a candidate out of a job it seems for the wrong reason. They will want you to consider them as a choice recruiter when you need help or have a talent problem.
    It’s best to keep the interview process simple with no more than 4 interviews to decide. Too many hiring managers overcomplicate the process and make it harder.  Help them by not rescheduling interviews - keep your appointments.Your reputation matters to the recruiters you want as your advocate with hiring managers.

    Ep 131: Your relationship with recruiters

    Ep 131: Your relationship with recruiters

    Personally connect with hiring managers and recruiters during the hiring process. Avoid putting pressure on them to help you with your career. If they don’t have an interview for you - it could be a timing issue, but that’s not reflective of you.
    Hiring managers and recruiters are people too. They have bad days, stressful days so cut them a break. If you understand their situation and contribute as you would when networking, you’ll get better results.
