My only piece of advice would be :-

- Match the person with the employment opportunity, not the other way around.

My experience has shown that too many recruiters look to change your aims, often looking to persuade you into employment which may not best suit you. 

While I appreciate that they have a job to do, and commission to earn, some recruiters seem unable to find an acceptable balance.

I agree, it's a very candidate driven market.....get a good candidate in and canvass them to prospect clients.

Putting my marketing hat on for a second, as a recruiter the benefit you supply to clients is the right candidate for the right job - not just filling a hole.

If you develop a reputation for quality candidates that fit the client's needs then you will be successful. If the candidates you provide are a waste of time or quick after a week - you'll soon be out of business.

The flip side of that is attracting the right candidates to be able to place - that's about providing the right candidate service and experience.

I think recruiters need to be more knowledgeable of all job oportunities in the company and know exactly what qualifications are needed for the job.  Recruiters also need to know if there are any benefit packages available with the job and educational opportunities available.  Recruiters basically need to act like an encyclopedia of knowledge about the company and the type of job they are recruiting for.  I should be able to ask them numerious questions related to the job and they should not hesitate to give me any information.

Recruiters need to recognize leaders and look beneath the surface of a resume.  They need to have the good skill and judgement to detemine if a candidate has what the company is looking for.  A recruiter who does not take the time to interact with the perspecitve employee and get to know them may be loosing out on a good candidate who can help their company grow and become profitable.

I think that one of the most important thing a recruiter can do is stick to their commitments.  How many times have you been told by one that they will contact you/get back to you/do xyz and then found that they have not and that when you follow up they are elusive and hard to track down.  I genuinely think this is poor organisation rather than malice but it still does not feel nice being at the other end of it

Absolutely - The recruiter or employer has to sell their business to the candidate as well

I definitely have to agree with this. I cannot stand when I am told that I will receive a call back on a certain day and then I call back to follow up to find that they filled the position. If the recruiter/interviewer is not going to call me back then please do not tell me you will contact me on a certain date. This only waists my time.

Recruiters are mostly after the commission they will soon get after finding a person for a job. Thus, finding a good recruiter is hard to find. Kittelson and Carpo is known for the best applicants they have hired for the companies. They made sure that their clients will be satisfied with the applicants.
