Consider ways that you can help the recruiter make your job search a higher priority. First, make sure your resume is up-to-date and ready to personalize for each potential employer. Review these resume-writing best practices. Patience through the process is important. Your recruiter understands that you're eager to find a job, so don't fill his or her email or voicemail with reminders that you're waiting for a response. The process takes time in many cases, so give the recruiter space to do the job. If you determine that your recruiter is not a good fit for your job search, end the recruiting relationship in a professional manner. If you have signed a contract, fulfill the terms of the contract. Find out which companies the recruiter contacted on your behalf to avoid conflicts if you pursue positions at those companies directly.
