You likely know what a recruiter is and how they help people find new job opportunities. You may even know of a friend or colleague that has worked with a recruiter in the past. But have you ever considered working with one? Working with a recruiter can help you get a leg up on your competition and boost your career trajectory. Here are three ways a recruiter can help you find your next job.
They have strong relationships
Recruiters have a direct line to hiring managers and human resource professionals. Instead of just submitting your application or resume in an online portal (aka a black hole), recruiters will submit your resume directly to the decision-makers. We have strong relationships with our clients and will get your resume placed on the hiring managers desk instead of stuck in an applicant tracking system.
So instead of letting a piece of software sift through your resume and decide whether or not you’re a qualified candidate, we will have an actual conversation with those who have all of the hiring power. We let them know all about your education, skills, and certifications, and build a case for why you should move onto the next step of the hiring process.
They work on exclusive job opportunities
Recruiters, like ones at Johnson Search Group, often have exclusive job orders. That means you won’t find the jobs we are working on anywhere else. Not on job boards, social media groups, or listed on any website. Our clients trust us to find them the talent they need to grow. Thus, we have opportunities for you that you cannot find or apply to with any other firm or job board. And guess what? A lot of these opportunities are roles with robust compensation packages and within great communities.
They act as your advocate
Recruiters are your biggest advocate. Yes, the client pays our bill for placing you, but if you don’t get hired, we don’t get paid. Thus, your best interest is our best interest. We won’t try to fit a square peg into a round hole. At Johnson Search Group, we will help you find roles that are an excellent match for both you and the client. We want you to enjoy your new role and place you with a company that you’ll be proud to work with every single day. If you’re looking to make a big leap in your career, we can help facilitate that. Or if you are looking to move to a new location, we can help find you a new home and employer. We care about our candidates and want to find your new careers where you will be successful.
