10 Things Recruiters Won’t Tell You

Recruiters have one job: find the right person for the position. Their performance is judged on how efficiently and effectively they match high-level skills to job requirements. Ironically, in the current economy, recruiters are finding their jobs more difficult than ever.


I’m serious.

They have too much talent to pull it off. What used to be “finding a needle in a haystack” has now become “finding a needle in ten haystacks.” As a result, recruiters have to determine a candidate’s marketability very quickly.

Translation: Candidates should pay even more attention to the power of the “first impression” factor.

First impressions really do matter (a lot).

People skills, clothing, etc. all become more important when the competition between talent is so intense.

Reality check: People who fail to make a good first impression are relegated to the “no” pile and never contacted again.

So, if you’re not getting called back by a recruiter after an in-person meeting or phone call, there’s a good chance that, in addition to the fact that you didn’t have the right skills, You must have displayed one too. Or more features on the “I can’t market them” list.

Now, most recruiters won’t tell you what you did wrong. Why? For one thing, they don’t get paid to give you bad news. Second, they don’t want to burn a bridge. And third, as I mentioned, they don’t have time.

And yet, how do you solve this problem if you don’t know it exists? I have collected the most common reasons why a recruiter rejects a candidate. You may not like what you read, but the good news is that it can all be improved with a little attention and practice.

So ask yourself, “Am I guilty of the following?”
