Ten Tips For Becoming A Successful Technical Recruiter

Our Top 10 Tips for Becoming a Successful Technical Recruiter

1 — Don’t Be Afraid of the Jargon

Young lady worried that she'll never be a successful technical recruiter with all the computer languages she needs to learn
Don’t let learning computer languages be a barrier to a career in technology recruitment. You don’t need to know the languages themselves, only have a rough idea of what they do and how they relate to your role.

2 — Accept That Every Day Will be a School Day

3 — Know Your Candidate

4 — Build Relationships

Establishing good relationships early on in your recruitment career can benefit you long term. You never know, the Tech Support candidate you place now may go on to become a CTO later in their career and so become one of your clients.

5 — Ask Lots of Questions

6 — Don’t be Scared of Making Mistakes

7 — Focus on Facts Rather Than Cliches

8 — Never Assume Anything

No matter how well you think you know a candidate, you should never assume anything about them. Their circumstances can often change or they omit information from their CV because they think it’s too obvious. Therefore, you should always pick up the phone and ask a question before making assumptions.

9 — Get Creative

10 — Understand the Job Description
