by admin on 02/17/2012

As a human resources job seeker, you may have considered hiring a recruiter. Hiring a recruiter can be a great way to find job leads and have someone on your side as you maneuver through today’s competitive job market. Here are a few tips in finding a good human resources recruiter:

1-     Find a recruiter that specializes in human resources. There are many types of recruiters available to job seekers. It is important to find one that specializes in placement within your field. This provides you the best way to find a job quickly.

2-     Find a recruiter that you are comfortable with. It is important that you feel comfortable with the recruiter that you choose. You want to be able to develop a working relationship with him or her and be honest about what you are looking for, what you are interested in, and your human resources experience and education.

3-     Ask about their requirements and business practices up front. Understanding how the human resources recruiter you are interested in works is important. You want to understand their business practices, how they work for you, what they expect from you, and how you should stay in contact with them.  Discussing this up front will help you decide if a recruiter is one you will feel good about having working for you.

4-     Repeat business. It is good to remember that, once you have found a human resources recruiter that you are happy with, you should remember to use them again in the future if you find yourself looking for another job.  Loyalty on your side will help the recruiter feel connected to you and make it easier for you to find your next job as well.
