Manage episode 300908497 series 2854910
If a recruiter has ever contacted you, you’ve wondered what it may be like to work with them. And if you have worked with a recruiter, you may be wondering what happens on their end and how you could be more “top of mind” with them when it comes to you finding your next position.
In this episode, I get on the mic with former recruiter turned career and life coach Melanie Mitchell-Wexler to clear the air about the best ways to work with a recruiter, how you can make the most of that relationship, and what you should avoid when connecting with recruiters. Also, Melanie and I talk about why you need to be and must be the best advocate in your job search.
