We all know a friendly, local Recruiter! But what do they do all day anyway? What is an external Recruiter?
The best part about working with an external Recruiter is that you both usually have the same goal — getting you placed with the employer. If you have gaps or other issues, they may be able to help you strategize a way to present yourself in the best light. Don’t expect them to help you figure out what you want to do, but do expect them to provide you with some insight into what is going on inside the employer’s organization — what the “hot” issues are, who are apt to be your allies in the hiring process, and who the real decision makers are.
To get more insight and chat all about UX, we tapped one of our newest Recruiters in Chicago.
