August 29, 2022

Who to call first when you need a new job: Recruiter or Career Coach? What is the difference between recruiters and career coaches?

These are some of the questions we addressed in this interesting interview with two recruiters, which was recorded live on LinkedIn, YouTube, and Facebook a few weeks ago.


8:30 What is the role of a recruiter? 

16:00 How do recruiters deal with the differentiation of somebody who has been a client and now needs a job?

22:49 Feeling that the recruiter has ghosted you.

32:57 Why is my job application not converting to a job interview?

39:49 That lack of transparency in recruitment and selection.

41:24 The challenge of returning to your home country and looking for work.

45:54 Things executive job candidates can do before they approach a recruiter for a chat. Or should they even come to see you for a chat?

47:59 Can recruiters tell the difference between a job candidate that has done career coaching and one that hasn't?
