There’s nothing more annoying than registering for job vacancies in Basingstoke with a recruitment agency and then not hearing anything. Why does this happen?
Distractions. Anything from temporary requirements to vacancies that don’t match your particular skills. Before we go any further, this isn’t a list of excuses. As an industry, we should respect our candidates and keep in touch. After all, how do we know that you wouldn’t be eligible for that job we’re trying to fill?
What recruiters need is as much information about you and your job search as possible. And that can’t come just from your CV. We want to know what makes you tick, what you don’t want, who you want to work with, and even who you don’t want to work with.
Basically, recruiters are networkers, matchmakers even. So how do you get to the top of the matchmaker’s list? Call us. Nag us. It would be great if we could call all of our candidates each week for a catch up, but I’m sorry, this just isn’t feasible. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to talk to you. So, when you have 5 minutes, call us. Update us on what’s happening. Have your circumstances changed? Are you available immediately?
It’s even more important to call if you are interested in a job we are advertising. It means you often jump the queue of applications. Get the information first hand, ask the questions that you need to ask. It’s all about building a relationship with your recruiter. Remember a recruiter isn’t the same as a job board. This is a service that is free, yet they can be a powerful networking tool. Your recruiter should be out there in the job market searching on your behalf.
However, they can only do this with all the information. So make friends with your recruiter. Allow them to do the best job possible for you. Keep in touch and tell them if they are getting wrong. And of course, make sure you tell them if they are getting it right.
Working with a local recruiter if you’re looking for job vacancies in Basingstoke can be very rewarding, as they will have the local business knowledge and there should be more opportunity to meet with companies face to face.
