5 Things you should know about job recruiters

1) Recruiters are not career counselors. Don't expect a recruiter to look at your resume and immediately understand where you would fit into their organization or to suggest which career path you should choose. It's your job to know what you want to do and to tell the recruiter where you fit into an organization.

2) Recruiters are not for hire by job seekers. They work for the employer who pays them. Many will go out of their way to help you, if they can, but do not expect them to guide you in your job search.

3) There are many different kinds of recruiters, but they all fall into one of two major categories: Internal recruiters, which are employees of the employer they represent, paid a salary by that employer. And External recruiters, who are employees of staffing firms or recruiting agencies that help many different employers find employees.

4) Recruiters are seldom the decision-maker determining whether or not you get a job offer. They often have input into the decision, depending on the organization, and they are often the person who delivers the good or bad news to the job seeker. But, someone else, makes the hiring decision.

5) Recruiters are seldom in control of the hiring process. Their job is to find good job candidates, and they try to keep the process flowing smoothly.
