4 Tips To Connect With Recruiters

on April 5, 2021 in ABR Blog, Career and Job Search Tips


Connecting with recruiters can be a great way to advance your job search. Set yourself up for success with these four recruiter connection tips.

  1. Research the recruiter. ABR Employment Services specializes in the placement of industrial, office support and professional positions. Our food and beverage executive search division, Kinsa Group, specializes in food & beverage positions. If you’re a .NET developer or nuclear engineer, we’re probably not going to be a great resource.
  2. When you reach out, attach an updated resume. Even if you are just looking for a casual introductory conversation, recruiters want to know who they are talking to and have some ideas in mind for the discussion.
  3. If you are reaching out about a specific job, be very clear about what job. At least share the location and title. Better yet, every job ABR Employment Services and Kinsa Group works on has a Job Number.  It’s a good idea to include that to ensure there’s no confusion.
  4. Many recruiters love it when candidates send an invitation to connect on LinkedIn. Look for recruiters that share the jobs they are  recruiting for on LinkedIn. That’s a great way to establish a mutually beneficial, ongoing relationship.

If you are on the hunt for a new manufacturing, office or professional position, connect with us on LinkedIn.

If you have 5+ years of food & beverage experience, feel free to reach out to Kinsa’s executive recruiters to introduce yourself.
