Think like a recruiter

recruiterOne of the tips I give people in their job search is that if they want a recruiter to find them, they need to think like a recruiter.  One of the easiest ways to do this is to participate in some of the free webinars that are offered online.  Many companies including LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Electronic Recruiting Exchange and offer periodic webinars to help recruiters source candidates.

You can also go on Twitter and other social media sites to follow these companies and learn from the tips they give recruiters.  Google searches are also helpful with things like “How to recruit Java programmers.”  Think to yourself “if I were a recruiter and I wanted to find candidates for the position I want to have, where and how would I look?  Also look up recruiter events and organizations.  Follow them on Twitter and other social media to see what people learned at these events.

All of this is also a great way to find out who the recruiters are in specific industries and companies.

Just remember, you just need one job and the next one you apply for might be the one.


People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.
