Have you ever worked with a tech recruiter? If you find yourself reading this blog, then you’re probably wondering if it would be good for you. As a leader in technology placement, our team at Raso Solutions knows what it takes to help top technology job seekers find jobs with world-renowned tech companies.

Today’s labor market is competitive for employers and job seekers, which is why it’s in your interest to partner with a recruiter to get more hands-on-deck in your job search. Read our list of Do’s and Don’ts when working with a tech recruiter.

Do Match Your Resume to Job Description

Required qualifications are essential for candidates to have when it comes to technical jobs. Check out the job you’re applying for and use similar verbs that the job description has. Try to use the keywords you see are repeated to increase your chances of moving your resume to the next round.

Don’t Lie

If you don’t know how to do something, don’t add it to your resume! As simple as it sounds, many applicants think they can “wing it” if they add skills they don’t have to their resumes. Recruiters will eventually catch the lie during the interview process.

Do Customize Your Message

If you plan on reaching out to a recruiter via LinkedIn, make sure to send a message that is 1). original and 2). specific. Avoid copying and pasting a generic message you’ve sent to other recruiters in the past. Take your time and type out a message that shows you put in the effort to research the job you’re applying for. Be specific on the job you’re interested in and why it matches your job skills.

Don’t Get Too Personal

There’s a difference between being personable and getting too personal. Don’t tell them your entire life story in a LinkedIn message or let them know how you saw that they liked the same bands as you on their Facebook page. If you know that you went to the same University as them, sure, that could be something you mention to them but avoid coming off too eager and even creepy.

Do Communicate Your Career Goals

Be clear on your short-term and long-term career goals. This will help your recruiter with a multitude of critical factors when matching you with new job opportunities. Pro tip: Communicate the type of company you see yourself working at as well. Company culture is just as influential as the industry you’re applying in.

Don’t Be Indecisive

If you’re not sure whether you want to be an active job seeker, be open and honest about it. This will allow your recruiter to allocate time to others who are looking for new job opportunities. Your recruiter will appreciate your honesty about your job search and ultimately better assist you in the end.
