How do employment recruiters look for job candidates?

One of my special interests is how individuals in various small worlds use information. There are many benefits to be had if you can figure out how to interact with a small world in which you don’t have membership. One way to gain entrance into that world is to understand how they use information: where they search, language they use, other cultural norms and behaviors they expect to see from someone who wants to interact with them.

I think this is why they say “Knowledge is Power”.

If you’re searching for a job, wouldn’t it be helpful to know where recruiters actually go to look for candidates? How about learning what behaviors will get you immediately crossed off their list?

  1. “If you’re searching for a job, wouldn’t it be helpful to know where recruiters actually go to look for candidates?” A very good point – especially if you are up against a lot of competition. I would say that, in particular, LinkedIn presents a great opportunity for candidates, with more and more agencies using it to source professionals.
