Recruiters In Berlin
Sometimes, it’s hard to find a job on your own, and you need help. Motivated recruiters will strive to place you as soon they can.
I’m generally not a fan of recruiters who on a commission basis. I feel like they treated me as a just another number and the minute that a company chose to go with another candidate, they fail to return my emails or phone calls. I never hear from them again. To date, I have not worked with a recruiter who was reliable or genuinely interested in finding me a job.
That said, as long as you know how recruiters can be, don’t take their dismissive behaviour or lack of attention personally. If they can help you land a job, go with them. Just be careful and don’t hesitate to turn down a job offer or terminate your work with the recruiter if you feel they’re pressuring you into an uncomfortable situation.
