Phone Call Tips.
I would like to share a few tips that will help when you are making calls to HRs or Recruiters:
1) Getting name, gender and salutation right. Nowadays, most HRs and Recruiters are on Linkedin. There is also a new feature from Linkedin to record names as well. It’s worth time and effort to perform research first as getting the name and salutation right will help build rapport immediately.
2) Self-Introduction. Avoid saying this “Hi, do you have any job opportunity in hand now?. Instead, I encourage you to say this, “Good Afternoon. This is Lai here. I have been working in the Recruitment Industry for over 8 years now. Currently, I’m the Country Director of BTC Recruitment Malaysia. I saw the job advertisement for Head of Recruitment role. Can we speak more about this?”.
3) Be Prepared. I would advise to send your CV upfront before calling HRs or Recruiters. You can have a better discussion during the call. Also, please prepare the followings before the call; working experience, technical skills and reason to explore new job opportunity.
I hope these 3 tips will be helpful to you to have a good phone call with HRs and Recruiters. 🤝🤝🤝
Wishing you all the best and good luck with your job search.
