I have always been told to look through the eyes of the other person. Keeping that in mind, I thought I would explain some tasks that recruiters have to accomplish. Will you be able to use this information to your advantage?
1. Recruiters are salespeople. They are tasked to sell the job opening and the company in order to attract the most talented employees. You are selling yourself to the recruiter and the recruiter is selling the company.
2. The truth is that you waste the recruiter's time (and yours) when you apply for job openings where you are not qualified for.
3. The easiest way to get a recruiters attention is to meet the education and experience requirements of the position that they're working on.
