Engineering candidates demand better communication with recruiters, says survey

Engineering recruiters’ top priority should be concentrating effectively with candidates, if new research from global technical recruiter VHR is anything to go by.

The findings from VHR’s survey of 500 engineering candidates, released this week, found for 88% of respondents, money wasn’t the most pressing issue when it came to finding a new job. The most important factor was communication with their recruitment consultant, with candidates valuing help with interview preparation and reassurance regarding their place in the recruitment process.

Almost a quarter (24%) of candidates said that having a good relationship with their recruitment agency was most important to them, while 26% said that a specialism in their career or industry was the most important factor in finding a job.
