A: When searching for a new job, relationships are the most important piece of the puzzle.
How you manage your interactions with people has a direct impact on the value of those relationships. This holds true for working with recruiters, too.

There are plenty of hidden benefits in building long-term relationships with recruiters.
Recruiters have in-depth market knowledge, equipped with trends, news, and updates with much expertise at our disposal. We not only provide updates but also act as a career coach, as a one stop solution for all your career insights.

With fantastic networking relationships, we know many vacancies that are not advertised, providing more opportunities for you. In addition to that, we also manage your application and do follow ups with the client on your behalf.

A: Our recruiters will review and contact the shortlisted candidates within a week. Allow at least 4-5 business days (a week) before following up with our recruiters as we need time to follow up with our clients too.

A few recruiter-friendly tips for following up on your applications.
  • Skip the phone. Send an email / text first.
  • Leave a black & white trail, and it allows us time to properly look up your application status before replying to you
  • Keep it professional, and respect personal boundaries.
  • Don’t get overly casual / personal with the recruiters even if you have a great initial interaction. Oversharing non-relevant personal information will only lead to the impression of poor personal judgement and recruiters would start wondering whether you are able to express yourself accurately during the interview with clients.
  • Ask the recruiters up front on how frequent you should be following up about your status. Please avoid calling your recruiters day & night and non-stop texting as they deal with dozens of candidates daily.
  • Show your interest, not desperation! We want you to be interested, passionate, excited about the job… but not desperately begging for interviews!
  • Try to sound upbeat, positive, and efficient when following up with the recruiters.
