Recruiters see the best results when they truly partner with their candidates. There are several ways a recruiter can foster this partnership:
- Make yourself available for the candidate’s questions or concerns throughout the entire process
- Provide the candidate with a complete picture of the position, company, and hiring process
- Communicate to the hiring team any questions or concerns the candidate might have so that the candidate can clearly focus on her/his experience and skillset during the interview process
When a candidate is fully informed and has a strong relationship with her/his recruiter, the candidate will be more at ease to focus on what they can bring to the table. Knowing that the recruiter is working for them and doing all they can to set the candidate up for success, the candidate will have a strong, confident foundation to work from during the interview process.
