10 Things Recruiters Won’t Tell You

October 28th, 2010 by lewis

I just read a SmartMoney magazine article called 10 Things Employment Recruiters Won’t Say. The article has many good insights on working with recruiters. Here are my top three takeaways:

  • Recruiters don’t work for the employee. Many job seekers forget that recruiters work for the hiring company.
  • The job advertised doesn’t exist. Sometimes recruiters will post phantom jobs just to build a candidate pipeline.
  • Recruiters will do exhaustive background checks even before they meet you. This can include talking to references and pulling up your credit scores.
