Working with Recruiters – 101
No doubt that searching for a job has changed over the years. Not so long ago I remember being a recent grad from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and pounding the pavement looking for a seagoing or shore side position. I must have knocked on every office door at 17 Battery Place, One Whitehall, 19 Rector Street, and One Broadway in lower Manhattan. Ultimately my persistence paid off and Hanjin Container Line hired me. Today what took weeks is accomplished with the click of a button. Positions are posted on job boards , social media sites, passed by word of mouth or text, and placed with recruiters to source qualified candidates.
