If you’re actively seeking a new role or fresh career opportunity, think of your recruitment consultant as a career’s advisor and not a salesperson. In other words, be open, honest and communicative about your current status and level of interest in the role under discussion.
Be aware your recruitment consultant is not only working for you, they’re also work for their client – their challenge is to achieve a mutually positive and rewarding outcome for both candidate and client alike.
Of course, your situation may change through the recruitment process and if so a timely update to your consultant will be seen as courteous and helpful to the overall process – it will also place you in good stead when next you need support.
We acknowledge the challenges of today’s employment landscape – timely and open communications will assist your consultant in meeting all stakeholders’ expectations.
It’s time to remind ourselves of the adage “Treat others as you expect to be treated”
