In the world of Temporary and Contract recruitment, it is absolutely vital to be efficient. We need to find the best talent to fill the client’s requirements in a very short period of time, just as you, as a candidate, might need to find a job as soon as possible for whatever the reason.Apart from having flexibility, you should also look to build a high degree of trust with your recruiter, as this is very important throughout the whole recruitment process.
Open and honest Communication
Don’t be afraid to let your recruiter know why you are leaving your current job, as well as previous jobs and explain any gaps you may have had in between jobs. The recruiter is here to help you locate a position which best suits you and prevent the same mistakes or circumstances from occurring again. Hiding your feelings and the true reasons behind choices you have made will not help you land a good role, but, rather, will waste your time and create a jumpy CV.
During the application process, you might be out of town, or, for whatever reason, unable to pick up any calls or emails. Please do let your recruiter know what would be the easiest way to get hold of you and make sure that they can back you up during the interview and negotiation process. This is very important in order to avoid any misunderstanding between the client and the recruiter. Ignoring them or not replying will damage your reputation in the market. You never know when you might meet them again. The world can sometimes be quite niche and you might come across those people again for other roles. A recruiter might have the chance to become an in-house HR, or the internal HR might move to another firm at which you might meet them again. Be nice to them; Karma is all around!
Keep in touch
You never know when your next job opportunity will come up, but perhaps the recruiter does. That’s why it’s important to stay in contact with them even when you are already settled in a job. Your ideal job might come up all of a sudden and there’s no harm in knowing what’s going on in the market, as well as any upcoming trends that may lead to you changing your circumstances for whatever reason.
