As you launch your career in the talent acquisition industry, one of your most helpful moves is working with a professional from a recruitment firm specializing in your field. Your career coach from that firm will become a trusted advisor, mentor, networking source, shoulder to cry on, and objective voice to listen as you plot your search strategy going forward.
Working with a niche firm helps reduce your overall stress and anxiety level. Because they serve only their specialty industry, it becomes much easier for you to narrow your search down to the positions that will be best for you.
Stay in the Know
General staffing firms tend to fill any job openings in any industry, so understandably, it’s unrealistic to expect them to have an abundance of information in any single type of work. Niche agencies, by contrast, make it a priority to stay current with specific industry hiring and market trends, career opportunities, companies, and competitors. You can rest assured they’ll provide you with the most up-to-date information and developments.
- A niche recruiter can better help you define exactly what type of position you’re looking for, if you’re not already sure. They also know which companies are hiring for those roles, what payscale you can expect, and what type of resume, skill set, experience, and education hiring managers are seeking on your resume and in the interview. With all this relevant information, you’ll be better positioned to make the right decisions as you pursue your search – and have a better shot and landing your dream job.
Gain Access to the Hidden Job Market
When it comes to high-level and business-critical positions – in other words, the best jobs out there and the ones you want to be in contention for – many companies don’t advertise to the public, they go straight to their niche recruitment firms.
- For you, this means less competition. You get to apply for those hidden jobs that most job seekers don’t have access to.
Gain a Partner
Working with a specialized vendor, a.k.a. niche firm, you’ll get all the help you need from your recruiter. They’ll do the legwork for you, help you perfect your resume, cover letters, and interview skills, and go to bat to get your foot in all the best doors. They can also help negotiate hours, salary, and perks once you get an offer. They’ll be your biggest fan as they support and guide you through your entire job search process.
