So, A Recruiter Reached Out to You. Now What?

recruiter

A strange phone number comes across your phone, so you let it go to voicemail. It’s from a recruiter letting you know about an opportunity that could possibly be the next step in your career.

You decide to give them a call back as your curiosity is peaked and not sure what the next step might be.

They provide you with some information on the job and ask you a few questions and after further discussion, you come to a decision to proceed with the opportunity. It’s part of my job to ensure that you not only have the qualifications they’re looking for but also will be a good fit for both you and the client.

As a recruiter, it’s my responsibility to ensure you have information on the company and the location. If it is a relocation, we will help do a cost comparison for you so you can make an informed decision on if you want to proceed.

So, you submitted my resume. Now what?

Once we submit your resume to the client, we wait for feedback and if I am doing my job correctly, you’ll be getting a first round interview. Depending on the organization and if you are local, this first interview could either be a phone or an onsite interview. At Johnson Search Group, we will provide you with guidance on and walk you through the process of what to expect.

And depending on the type of job and the industry you’re in, you may have other interviews and additional steps throughout the hiring process. Don’t worry. We’ll be here every step of the way to guide you throughout the hiring process to ensure you make the best impression on your prospective employer.

Congratulations, they want to make you an offer!

You did great on your interviews and they want to hire you! If there is any salary negotiation, we will help to ensure you get what was originally discussed. Once we help you get the position, we don’t stop there! We walk you through everything from your potential relocation to you drafting your resignation letter.

Even after you’re hired, we value our commitment to you and we’ll follow up with you. We truly care about you and your career; we want to be certain you like your new position!

Communication

As a recruiter in the healthcare industry, communication is key for both my candidates and clients. If at any time during this process you decide to back out, please tell me. I work hard for you and also my clients to make sure that this position will be a great fit. I would never submit you for a job that wouldn’t be a great fit. At JSG, we’ll never try and put a square peg in a round hole.

The next time you get a call from a recruiter, take a moment and hear what they have to say. It could be the opportunity you have been waiting for!
