“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives”
– Anthony Robbins
We sometimes take for granted that communication is involved in everything we do on a daily basis. In addition, communication comes in many different forms, and realizing your audience can make you that much more effective in your own communication. Communication is the backbone of any relationship, whether personal or professional.
From a recruiting perspective, the importance of communciation can’t be stressed enough, The relationship you establish with a recruiter can prove to be great experience. It may land you in your dream job, get you that increased wage you have been looking for, or help you get into that company that you may not have the opportunity to get into on your own. None of this is possible without excellent communication from both parties.
Once the relationship has been established and the screening process begins, communication will ultimately play the biggest factor in your pursuit of the desired position. Why? We as recruiters understand that our clients are looking for more than just an excellent technical skill set. They are looking for the “total package.” Keep in mind that a resume is just an introduction to your professional experience; how you present yourself and communicate that experience will prove to be more important during the screening process. Without the ability to communicate your experience effectively, you may ultimately miss out on your dream position. Working with a recruiter can help you hone those communication skills you need to land the position you've been searching for.
