colleagues and employees. This is one of the ways recruiters get to know about you, your work and contacts in the industry.

  • Let the recruiter know that you may consider staying if your present employer makes you a counter-offer.
  • Protect your job by telling your boss that you get calls from recruiters all the time, and not to worry. You are not leaving.
  • Hang up if a recruitment firm asks you to pay a fee.

    • Don’t think that the job is yours if the recruiter is calling you. A recruiter is calling for candidates. You may only get to the inter view stage.
    • Don’t get sidetracked by a good opportunity. If a position is not in line with your career goals, you will not be making a good move.
