The Kinds of Recruiters That You Will Meet at Career Fairs
Hunters- Just looking for a key hire, or 2, or 3. If the company seems right, but the recruiter ignores you, then get their literature and go to the corporate website.
Farmers- These recruiters seem genuinely interested in you, and everyone else they meet. Never walk away from a smile. These recruiters are looking for talent that they can grow. If you have questions then they will probably answer them.
Vacuum Cleaners- Some companies have lots of jobs and send out recruiters to just collect as many resumes as possible for post-event evaluation. Easy to spot as these recruiters generally avoid conversation, don't discuss specific positions, and provide you with a generic 'go to our website' brochure or business card.
