Complaints we always here in the recruiting world is…
I applied to an agency and never heard from anyone?
I referred my co-worker to an agency and they never followed-up?

When you want haircut, do you wait for the hairdresser to call you?
When you need an oil change, do you wait for the garage to call you?
When you need a mammogram, do you wait for the Radiologist to call?
When you want a ride, do you wait for Uber to request to pick you up?

When it’s tax season, do you wait for the Accountant to call you?
When you need a vacation, do you want for VRBO to call you?
When you need or want a new job, do you wait for the Recruiter to call you?

Yet just like other professionals, such as mechanics, lawyers, and accountants, we see many customers all day long. Our advice- be remembered: the only way to get singled out and hired is by being present! Please get rid of that “doom and gloom” outlook– instead call or email the recruiter to remind them how you are the best candidate for the job! And remember….
