What Recruiters Look for in Candidates

Recruiters are always seeking out new candidates to fill various roles within companies on a regular basis.  Many recruiters pride themselves on building robust recruiting pipelines, so they always have a go-to list of candidates to pull from to fill key positions as they arise. As a result, recruiters use tools like LinkedIn and other networking platforms to preemptively identify candidates. There are some key attributes that recruiters look for when sourcing candidates. Here is a brief list to help job seekers know what to expect:  

  1. Professionalism
  2. A compelling resume
  3. A well-written cover letter
  4. An impressive LinkedIn profile
  5. Relevant education, certifications, and training
  6. Appropriate qualifications for stated positions
  7. A strong work history
  8. Stellar references
