What we will ask of you so that we can provide the best results:

  • Clarify your needs. Explain the type of job and company you are seeking. Set reasonable expectations of minimum salary, work arrangements and expected hours.
  • Be honest. Disclose any gaps in your employment history, and the reasons for changes in employment. Let the recruiter know your feedback and where you stand in pursuit of various opportunities.
  • Have an open mind. Many candidates are pleasantly surprised by roles and candidates they may not have considered.
  • Be responsive. The process works best when there is a timely exchange of ideas and information. Delays in feedback and communication can impact your success and could cause employers to move forward with other candidates.
