Records Don't Forget


In todays market place of more candidates than there are positions, you will find yourself talking to lots and lots of recruiters. You will also find that you are being submitted to lots and lots of positions.


When you are flooded with calls and submissions it is easy to forget who you have talked to, when you talked to them, and what position you talked about.


It is very important at this stage to keep a good accurate record of your calls and the recruiters who have submitted you and what clients you have been submitted to. This also is important when you are applying on your own to a position.


What you don’t want to happen is to tell a recruiter that you have not talked to anyone about the position they have reached out to you about, and then get submitted only to find out that you did talk to someone and you were submitted, maybe it was 3 months ago or longer. No one is expected to remember every call that has been made to them.


That’s why keeping a record is important, RECORDS DON’T FORGET.


Keeping records also will help you in the future, there may be a position that you were very interested in but it was filled, keeping a record will allow you to go back to that client or recruiter and check in to see if the position has been re-opened or possibly another position has been created.
