The top dos and dont's when meeting with a recruiter
Very rarely do I meet someone, even at the senior level, who can articulate their career goals or name target companies or sectors.
Show up on time
Keep a spreadsheet of your job search
Read over your CV
Remove your address from your CV
Be overly flexible
Veer off track
Be afraid of your past mistakes
Go on holiday
And a final piece of advice…
Treat a meeting with a recruiter like an interview with a company. Be well presented, on time and engaged with the process.
Be honest and unafraid to discuss past mistakes or gaps in your CV, and be open to feedback. The recruiter can provide valuable advice to improve your chances, but only if you're willing to listen and act on it.
