Skill Level Beginner
- Hi there, everyone. I'm Alex Moyle, and I'm here to help you get more from your recruitment agency relationships when you're job hunting. Now, I know agency recruiters can be extremely frustrating. They don't return your calls, you never get any feedback, and they only sort of seem to want to be your friend when they're going to make some money. But over the last 20 years in the recruitment industry, I've worked with thousands of job seekers and I've worked with thousands of recruiters, and there is a way for you to work together whereby not only do you get a better job, they also get some success too. And so, what we're going to get from this video is four things. The first thing you're going to get is just a few tips and tactics on how to change your mindset of your job search. It may be that you're expecting a little bit too much from your relationship with a recruiter. The second thing we're going to do is we're going to look at the life of a recruiter. Now, I don't expect you to feel sorry for them and I know some of the things that they do aren't right, but hopefully, it might give you some insight into why they do some of the things that they do. The third things is I'm going to help you find that recruitment career partner, because whilst plenty of recruiters don't want to know you past this job, there is those out there that do want to know you, not just today, but for the future. And the last topic we're going to cover is that if you can be more proactive in helping the recruiters that you work with, you're going to unlock massive levels of motivation for them actually helping you get the job that you want.
