Whether you're looking for a contract or permanent opportunity, our guide below takes you through how to make the most out of working with a recruiter like Morson Canada.
The first most important factor to get right is to explain where you currently are in your career and be specific about your next steps. Make sure the recruiter knows firstly what skills and experience you have in your field and secondly, what new role you are looking for. This includes details such as your salary expectations, the scope of the role, location and type of company etc.
By making all of the above information clear from day one, you avoid the risk of wasting the recruiters and most importantly, your own time.
We pride ourselves on our personal approach. Therefore we want to get to know you, so that we can find you a role that is the right technical and cultural fit.
Good communication during the recruitment process is key, and this works both ways. Make sure you reply to all emails, return calls and keep the recruiter updated on your situation. You never know, that missed call may be the ticket to your new job!
