27 July, 2022

Have you ever had an interviewer with a recruiter? We’re about to give you insider tips on the 5 things recruiters want to tell you in your interview.

Your recruiter is an important person. They are the connection between you and the company or employer you want to work for.

Recruiters can also represent multiple employers, so if you make a good impression, you may open yourself up to other job opportunities than the one you are interviewing for.

Don’t put yourself at a disadvantage during your recruitment interview.

Read the following tips and take notes before your next interview.

Do your research

We hate to break it to you, but you aren’t the first or last interview for the job role. Recruiters interview people all day, it’s their profession. So they know when you haven’t read the job role or done your background research. Be ready to share numbers or examples that highlight how well you’ve performed in your current or past roles. Use these examples to outline how you would be an asset to this new role.

Challenge your recruiter with questions

Listen to feedback

Sometimes it’s hard to take on board constructive criticism but if it’s delivered professionally it can be extremely beneficial to helping your grow in your career. Take notes and implement them.

Never burn bridges

If a role isn’t right for you, that’s fine. You might not need my help now, but you never know what might happen in the future. Don’t burn bridges with recruiters, you never know if your dream job might be around the corner.

Less is sometimes more

Try not to ramble. If the recruiter needs to interject to move on to the next question, or isn’t doing any of the talking that’s a sign to wrap it up. Be structured in your responses and get to the point.

Remember, by making a good impression in your interview, you’re positioning yourself well for opportunities that are a great fit for you!
