So You Want to Work with a Recruiter?

Have you been contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn? Are you curious if working with a recruiter could help boost your job search?

This summer we invited executive recruiter and career coach, Joanne Yawitz to share tips with WashU grad students and postdocs, and address common questions. For example, she helped attendees navigate the question, "if a recruiter contacts you, what do you do?" Joanne responded that typically you want to first ask what type of recruiter they are (contingent or retained). To hear Joanne's advice, you can check out this brief video that explains the difference between working with a contingent vs retained recruiter.

Joanne also shares advice on how to be a memorable job candidate.
