If the recruiter wants to speak with you and suggests a time via email, respond promptly and confirm your availability, and provide a phone number where you can be reached. The good news is that the recruiter is in contact with you. Either way, you will be hearing some news. The interviewing process is challenging, and a lot of time is spent waiting for some type of answer. Don’t overthink things. Respond to the questions asked of you and <em>don’t</em> provide information for which you aren’t asked. In situations like these, less is more. In due time, you will hopefully have your new role and be contributing in a new work environment.
Recruiters are oftentimes handling multiple candidate searches so there is no need to be alarmed if a recruiter calls to ask an additional question or to get clarification on something – even something that you previously covered in another conversation.

If the recruiter is asking to schedule an interview today or at some point in the future, the best approach is to provide a list of times and/or days that work best for you. Giving the recruiter options ensures at least one of them will be convenient for both of you. When a recruiter asks you to resend your resume or provide additional information, don’t panic. Simply attach a copy of your resume to your responding email or include the requested information. You can mention you would be willing to send along any other documents or information the recruiter would find helpful. Keep your closing simple and patiently await a response.
