Recruiting Relationships

Monday, September 14, 2020  by Bailey

At B&B, we have developed many relationships over the last 33 years to fill senior and executive level positions for many companies across the country. It is important to us not only to develop relationships with the clients we recruit for, we also want what's best for you, our job seekers. Like with most relationships, building good ones can take time and it is never too early to get to know us and our process. Here are some tips:
Send someone our way and we are sure to pay it forward. Not only are you helping out a friend, when the time comes for you we will remember you thought of us. Referrals are one of the largest sources for our leads.
Honesty is the best policy:
Remember that we have the ability to do very thorough background checks. Don’t exaggerate or worse lie about your credentials, it can really damage your reputation in the long run. We want to get to know the real you so we can make sure you are the right fit for the jobs we fill.
Be Ready:
We all have bad days at the office. Before you take the leap and reach out to us to make sure you are really ready and committed to wanting to change jobs. We want your experience with us to be a successful one.
Set Limits:
Let us know from the beginning if there are certain industries, employers or geographic areas that are off limits. This way we can deliver exactly what you are looking for.
When thinking about changing jobs right off the bat think about those references and make sure they are strong ones. They help us get to know you better and often references tell us great attributes and qualities about you that you may not have thought to include in your resume.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions:
Ask away about the company, the culture, the requirements, again we want to make sure you will be happy in your new position.
