Tips from a Retained Search Recruiter

This week I listened to a Blue Steps webinar on Recruiter Tips for Interviewing and would like to share some points that answer questions I hear from clients frequently.

One of the recruiters was asked “How often should you keep in touch after an interview?” The response was that during the interview you should get a time for the next step and then contact the recruiter on that date and then every week until you get a yes or no.

Another question was on how to be memorable in a good way. The answer was to make a personal connection with the interviewer and to do so by researching the people beforehand. See if you went to a common school and then bring that up. If the company sells a product, go buy it and if it sells a service, use it and be able to discuss the product or services with enthusiasem.
