You want your recruiter to be friendly and to be able to create a personalized relationship with you. You don’t want them to be just a recruiter, but more of a friend who you can trust and be sure they have your best interest at heart. Your new friend can also be an advocate for you if you have made t through the interview process and will look at things with a glass half full attitude to recommend you or other roles as well depending on what specific needs you have. 

Strong Communication Skills 

The details matter with a recruiter. They need to be able to communicate quickly and efficiently with you, the internal team, and the facilities you could potentially work with. Following up and following through is vital to make sure all the intricate parts are completed on time. Your recruiter needs to take the time needed to make sure you understand the process and to keep you informed every step of the way. 

Realistic Expectations 

Sugar coating is great on baked goods, but when it comes to your livelihood sugar coating isn’t needed. You want someone who listens to your concerns and will not sugarcoat things.

They need to have clear foresight and planning all while being able to be proactive.
