What to Expect From a Recruiter

When Rudd Executive Search, LLC is hired to assist an employer in finding the right person for a position, all fees are paid by the employer and no fees are charged to any candidate. Many of the positions we work on are confidential are never advertised. What this means to you as a candidate, is that we represent unique opportunities that handled exclusively by our firm, so it is to your advantage to be known by us and respond when we contact you.

Rudd Executive Search, LLC specializes in facility management and corporate real estate professionals. We do accept resumes of professionals in this specialty but since searches are driven by employer needs, we cannot guarantee results to candidates. We can guarantee that your resume will be handled professionally and confidentially. Your resume is never sent to any employer without your express consent. We receive numerous resumes every day. We review all resumes and enter into our database but will only contact people that fit active positions.

Candidates are treated confidentially and professionally.

Maintain Visibility and network now for the future.

Recruiters often work on confidential positions that are not advertised. When a recruiter starts a new assignment, the first stop is often the recruiter’s own database. The next step is often developing a list of new candidates using association member lists and searching on the Internet using tools like LinkedIn and Google. Recruiters are tenacious but if your name is not out there, then, we cannot find you.

Become visible to recruiter’s in your field by:

  • Developing a professional LinkedIn profile.
  • Returning recruiter’s phone calls so that you are entered into their database
  • Join trade associations
  • Publish articles in trade magazines or get your name mentioned when your company is interviewed
  • Have your promotion or new job announced by the local newspaper and in trade journals

When the recruiter calls

When a recruiter calls, if you invest a few minutes, you can quickly decide if an opportunity is right for you and if this recruiter is someone you may want to know for the future. If you are accurately entered into a recruiter’s database, you increase the likelihood that you will hear about unadvertised opportunities that are relevant to you and have the choice to pursue or not.

Why do recruiter's ask for referrals?

We present opportunities to people. We don’t expect everyone we contact to be qualified and/or interested in the opportunity but we do hope to help people advance in their careers. We can’t present an opportunity if we don't know about you or your associates.

If we contact you and you are not interested in an opportunity, please consider referring a friend or colleague. People are hesitant to give referrals. Everyone has had experiences with annoying phone calls and don't want to the source of a friend's or associate’s ire and that is why we can assure you that we handle all these calls professionally. By referring someone, you give him or her the opportunity to potentially advance in their career by introducing them to a recruiter in their field. All referrals are handled with discretion.

What about Job Boards?

Job boards can be a very useful tool for jobseekers and employers alike BUT be wary of posting your resume online. Many companies subscribe to the resume databases and search those databases for potential employees but also, some will put in their own company name to see whose resume comes up. It may be your employer looking at your resume.
