Have you ever been approached by a recruiter for a role that you thought was completely unsuitable for what you would like to do career-wise and wondered why it keeps happening or what you need to do for it to stop happening? Well in this video operations director Mark Loughnane breaks it down for you and discusses it. Recruiters are always on the search for people to fill a role but they don’t always get it right

1) Different recruiters different methods

The first point stems from the fact different recruiters have different methods for how they source candidates for roles. Some will reach out to many people in hopes of finding the person who will then go to the interview stage and then offer stage.

2) Many do not tailor make there messages when reaching out

There is a debate on whether recruiters should tailor make their messages when reaching out to potential candidates. This is the process of making a the message more personal and relatable to the the candidates in hope of a better result.

3) Fill out your LinkedIn profile!
