Job hunting has never been easy – and this crazy, unpredictable year is certainly no exception. But that doesn’t mean you have to put your career advancement plans on hold. Now more than ever, a professional recruiter who specializes only in finding the right jobs for the right people could be the answer you’re looking for.
Why throw a vendor into the mix, you may ask, when I already have enough to do? Resume updates, job boards, and postings to comb through by the bazillions, social media to track, people to try and meet, even if it has to be done remotely … and the list goes on.
That’s precisely why.
You can save time, energy, stress, and frustration by partnering with a recruiter. In the end, you’re likely to benefit financially, too, as your vendor helps you find and negotiate the best role.
Get your foot in the door.
The first step you need to take in landing your next great job is the one that gets you in an employer’s door. You may have to pass through applicant tracking systems (ATS), get to know the right people or a combination of the two. A qualified recruiter can help on all counts – from perfecting your resume and online brand to connecting you with the right people in their network.
- Of course, you can also cover important ground on your own – and you should always be networking and putting your best foot forward. Your vendor will enhance those efforts and exponentially increase your chances of finding the ideal job sooner rather than later.
Why waste time?
A recruitment vendor will help you to more quickly narrow your job search and find the position that’s the best fit for you. Recruiters have skill and perspective, based on their training and experience, to evaluate candidates and match them efficiently to available positions. If your skills, background, and personality align with an open role, your vendor will connect you ASAP to the hiring decision-maker.
Get the inside track.
Recruitment firms have access to unadvertised jobs, as well as potential future openings, often well before they occur. Once you develop a relationship with your recruiter, your name will be top of mind when the opportune time comes.
Benefit from ongoing feedback.
Your recruiter will begin by getting to know you. Then they can offer tips on how to market yourself better, tackle tough interview questions, and master other techniques to position yourself as a leading candidate. They may even identify strengths in you that you didn’t even know existed. The best recruiters have a superpower sixth sense in that regard.
