How to Cultivate a Relationship Between the Two Processes

The reason why it is important to build a link between the two processes is so recruiters can set clear expectations for potential employees. There should be no false hope built during the interview process, and no surprise expectations from employees once they start the job.

    3. Build a relationship with a recruitment agency. By building a lasting relationship, you are ensuring a much higher success rate in terms of hiring.
