Top Ten Guidelines For Working With Executive Recruiters
1. Select the right type of recruitment partner
Determine whether you would be best served by a retained, contingency, contract or research based partner at a global, national or local level.
2. Interview recruiters to find the appropriate fit
Effective partnerships are built on mutual interests, opportunities, values and performance.
3. Treat an interview with a recruiter with the same care and professionalism as a job interview
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
4. Develop an exclusive relationship with your recruiter
More is not better. Being presented for an opportunity by more then one firm can get you knocked out of consideration.
5. Have well developed job search criteria
Know what you want in a new position and be able to clearly articulate your interests and needs.
6. Understand who the real client is
You're the "solution" not the client. The real client is the company that has engaged the recruiter.
7. Do not pay for services
The employer has the responsibility for paying the recruiter's fee, not you. Do not agree to payment for services.
8. Establish strong communication
Open, honest communication and feedback is key. Look for compatibility in work-style, personality and values.
9. Be your professional best
A recruiter may help you get in the door, but only you can win the job.
10. Actively pursue all other methods of job search while working with a recruiter.
Take a pro-active approach to your career transition with on-going use of networking activities, referrals, job postings, research and interviews throughout the duration of your search.

How To Get a Job Offer From Every Interview
About four years ago a friend told me one night that she had an interview the next week and was looking for some comfort as she was extremely nervous, as most people are about interviews. I thought back on my my carreer and realized that in the nine year of my career I had been to thirteen interviews and, more importantly, that I had received a job offer from every one of those interviews. I did not accept all the offers, but the point is that I had not once been to an interview without getting a job offer from it.

An RX For Your Résumé
Whether you are an accountant, virtual assistant, or a corporate executive, your job skills are constantly refined.

Your résumé should be well written, typeset and laser printed. It should also be suited for your targeted employer and field, focusing on your key experience. It should be free of all grammatical errors and appealing to the eye.
