How to Reach Out to a Recruiter


Given the current and predicted future growth of job opportunities in the U.S., recruiters can’t hire people fast enough. While we usually think of recruiters as people who reach out to potential candidates, not the other way around, this may be an opportune time to reach out to them proactively if you’re looking for a new job. The author presents three steps to do so in a way that’s targeted and mutually beneficial. First, understand how recruiters work (keeping in mind that they don’t work for you — they work for companies). Second, understand whether you’re approaching an internal or external recruiter. Finally, do your research, and when you’re ready to get in touch, make their jobs easy by letting them know why you would be a good fit for roles in their area of expertise.
