Reasons you Should be Open to Recruiters (Even if you're not Job Hunting)

When an opportunity comes knocking why shut the door? 
Some people think of recruiters as people who always manage to call at a difficult time and, frankly, you just don't want to listen to another sales call. Here a few things you might want to consider next time a head hunter, like us here at Company Fusion, wants to make a connection with you.

1. Firstly, it's not a sales call. Our services to you as job seekers are completely free. We have a client who is looking for their next top notch employee, and we think it could be you.

2. If you aren't interested in the job or aren't in the sector anymore please let us know we won't be mad, we might even have another role that might suit you better. We really aren't here to waste anyone's time.

3. If a recruiter has sent you a request to connect on LinkedIn and you are open to a new opportunity why not accept? Even if you aren't thinking about a new job right now it won't hurt to think about the future, you never know what's around the corner!

4. Don't be rude or hang up. It might be that you have such a bad day in the office that makes you want to consider what could be out there. Suddenly you want a new job (honestly, this really happens!) Don't shut doors you may want to be open later.

5. If you are interested in the job we contact you about, you have a unique advantage over other applicants. We have a relationship with the hiring manager, this means your CV is guaranteed to be seen by the right person. We want you to get the job so we keep you updated about what the next step will be. As well as giving you useful information before a phone call or interview, giving you the best chance at the new opportunity.
