When you have made the decision to start looking for a new job to advance your career, it can be overwhelming to get the process started and successfully achieve your goals. Fortunately, you do not have to do it alone – a recruiter can be a valuable partner for your job search. Recruiters are responsible for helping their employer clients fill their job openings, so they have a vested interest in forming professional relationships with top talent like you. Here is how a recruiter can help take your career to unforeseen heights:
Provides Access to More Openings
Many employers opt to solely utilize staffing agencies for their hiring needs and do not advertise their available positions to the general public. Working with a recruiter provides you access to more openings than if you handled your job search alone. Plus, unlike relying on publicly available job listings, you can feel confident they are all high-quality leads.
Saves Time Looking for Positions
Job searching is time-consuming, especially when it comes to tracking down openings from a wide variety of sources and having to vet them to ensure they are legitimate opportunities. A recruiter can save you significant time in your job search because they will contact you with the opportunities that are the best match for your skill set, professional goals, and personal preferences.
Offers Expert Job Search Guidance
A common source of frustration when trying to advance your career is when you don’t get the outcomes you desire, either by not getting contacted at all after applying or interviewing and not receiving an offer and not knowing why. Partnering with a recruiter can be insightful because they are experts in hiring and know what makes candidates most appealing to hiring managers, and can offer you guidance to make you as marketable as possible.
Gets You More Visibility to Hiring Managers
Taking your career to the next level will be more likely if you have strong recommendations from a respected recruiter. Hiring managers may receive so many applicants that it can feel impossible to stand out amongst the competition, but having a recruiter vouch for you can get you more visibility and increase the chances of your resume receiving a closer look.
