If you’re contemplating a career change or currently looking for a new job, it can be overwhelming. Do you want to make a lateral change and find a company with a better culture or perks (such as working from home)? Or are you looking to shift your career in a different direction? Wherever you land on this spectrum, this is no easy feat. But there is one thing that can improve your job search, regardless of your newfound career goals: working with a recruiter. Here’s what it is like working with a recruiter.
More available job opportunities
Working with a reputable recruiting firm unlocks the door for hundreds of job opportunities you won’t find on traditional job boards. Many of the roles recruiters work on are exclusive jobs, so you likely won’t find them floating around online. Thus, working with a recruiter will allow you to expand your opportunities, and possibly, find the job of your dreams that you otherwise would have never seen!
So, whether you are looking for a contract assignment or a direct-hire job, partnering with a recruiter will take your job search to the next level.
Recruiter have great relationships
Recruiters work hard to establish strong relationships and communication with their clients. We take the time to truly understand our clients’ needs and the type of candidates that will fit their organization. However, through these relationships we have built, we can better serve job seekers like yourself. If you are working with a recruiter, we will submit yours directly to the hiring manager. We give them an overview of your skills, background, and achievements, so they know how great you are right off the bet. Essentially, instead of your resume getting thrown on a digital stack with your competition, we make sure your resume gets in the hands of the hiring manager. That instantly boosts the likelihood of you receiving an interview!
You have someone in your corner
When you are in the middle of the job search, it kind of feels like no man’s land. You are not sure what’s going on throughout the process and constantly waiting for the next step. However, when working with a recruiter, you have someone in your corner to guide you through the entire hiring process. If you have a question about what’s next, they will be right there to answer it and assist you each step of the way. If the client’s hiring process is slow, it’s your recruiter’s job to reach out and see what’s going on and nudge them in the right direction.
When hiccups occur along the way, they work hard to resolve them. All you have to do is bring your A-game to your interviews and the rest is smooth sailing. Working with a recruiter is basically having an ally walk you through the process. They care about your success and want you to receive an offer just as bad as you do.
