Your recruiter is responsible for working with you and their clients to represent you for opportunities that seem a fit.

- Your recruiter is not responsible for motivating you when you feel discouraged, coaching you when you feel fear. Most recruiters will want for your success, but they are responsible for and goaled with filling the jobs they have.
