Are you new to working with a recruiter? Has it been a while since you’ve job hunted? No matter what your past experience is with recruiters, it’s good to know what to expect when interacting with your recruiter – especially as times change and video/digital processes become more prominent.
How fast can I get placed? What do I need to do and when can I expect answers? This is where True Talent Group steps in. We’re experts in our industry and we’re here as your guide. Let us help make the process of working with a marketing recruiter one that’s simple, transparent and positive.
Tip 1: Know that timing is everything!
A good recruiter places talent (the job hunter) in a place where they’ll thrive – which is exactly what True Talent Group does. Let’s start by building a relationship. The more we can get to know you, your background and your skills, the better. Remember: job placement doesn’t happen overnight, but it could happen tomorrow! We’re good at tracking true star talent and placing them in their dream jobs. Why? It’s all we do!
Tip 2: It’s true, we want to place you in your dream job.
True Talent Group Works exclusively in the industry. If you see an open position, reach out to us. If we have a relationship with the client (hiring organization) and can source that position, we are your best path for getting hired. And if that job isn’t the best fit, we’re here to help you get placed for the next one.
Tip 3: We sit in the hot seat for you.
We pride ourselves on our ability to get to know you and your career goals, understand your skills and what work culture best fits your personality, and your working style. Do our mission, goals and core values align with yours? If so, let’s start building a relationship.
Tip 4: Keep working on development while we’re working on finding the best job.
Your skills and relationships are your most powerful tools when it comes to job hunting. Get involved with industry associations. Go to network events (including virtual ones). Talk to someone about learning a new skill. Always be open to brushing up on skills you already have in your toolbox. That way you’re armed and ready to go when it’s networking time.

The best way to build relationships is by truly getting to know someone, the talents they offer and their personality. We’re an advocate for you, but also make sure you invest in yourself.
