Boiling it down, think about your situation from the hiring manager’s point of view. He or she has to be pulled aside from their day-to-day at the end of the workday to review resumes and fill an open requisition. An open requisition that is either costing them money or not making them money by leaving it vacant.

When they find an ideal candidate, sometimes it’s more of a cultural fit if they know they can train someone rather quickly. So trust that if it’s supposed to happen, it will. If not, keep looking for opportunities in this new space.

The hiring process is selective for a reason — it’s time-consuming and costs a lot of money and resources from sourcing, recruiting, and interviewing to background checks, reference checks, drug tests, and finally training. A lot is involved so it’s crucial they get it right.

That means, showing them you care about their time. And their money! And productivity, efficiency, etc. Show them you offer this value that they can use in this open requisition.

Why is it open? What pains do they have because it’s open? Once you can hone in on that, you can start to massage in key-value- and accomplishments-based content that makes your resume pop and motivates these decision-makers to invite you in on an interview.

Be pragmatic and don’t ask. Offer more than want. Rather than asking people to help you get a job resume, ask them how can you be a better candidate. How can you improve? And what knowledge do you offer to help them to reciprocate?

Job seekers should be considerate towards hiring managers and recruiters because it can make a positive impression and improve their chances of landing the job. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. It shows professionalism: Being considerate towards hiring managers and recruiters is a sign of professionalism. It shows that the job seeker takes the process seriously and is willing to put in the effort to make a good impression.
  2. It can set you apart from other candidates: In a competitive job market, any little thing that can set a job seeker apart from other candidates can be helpful. Being polite, responsive, and respectful can make a big difference in how a hiring manager or recruiter views a candidate.
  3. It can help build a relationship: Even if a job seeker doesn’t get the job they applied for, being considerate towards the hiring manager or recruiter can help build a relationship that could be helpful in the future. The hiring manager or recruiter may keep the candidate in mind for other job opportunities or may be willing to offer advice or feedback on the candidate’s job search.
  4. It reflects well on the job seeker’s character: Being considerate and respectful towards others is a positive character trait that can benefit job seekers in all areas of their lives, not just in the job search process.

Overall, being considerate towards hiring managers and recruiters is a smart move for job seekers. It can help them make a positive impression, set themselves apart from other candidates, and build relationships that could be helpful in the future.
