The Personal Touch...

Every person on the planet is unique, though we have commonalities with other people in our career fields.  SharePoint professionals are no exception. The biggest single key to success in recruiting (and not being seen by your candidates as just another recruiter later) is to build personal relationships with your potential candidates, get to know their interests outside of work, etc. Shadeed Eleazer has a great article on the subject here.

From personal experience, recruiters who follow up with me a few months or even a year down the road just to say hi and see what I'm up to always earn some extra bonus points. It let's me know that I am more than just another marketable commodity.
