You might make the mistake of thinking that there’s no need to reach out to a recruiter if you have a steady job that you enjoy right now. But that’s not always true. In fact, it’s never a bad idea to reach out to a recruiter—even if you’re not looking for a new opportunity.
Here are four reasons to reach out to a recruitment expert this month:
You Just Never Know
The first reason to reach out to a recruiter even if you’re not looking for work: You just never know what your recruiter might find for you. A new opportunity—a better opportunity—could be right around the corner, and you’d never know it without your recruiter’s help. It never hurts to explore your options. You just might come across better pay, better benefits, a better team or work environment, or additional perks that you don’t have right now.
You’ll See What’s Out There
Even if you’re not job hunting, it’s a good idea to get a sense of the labor market in your particular area. And working with a recruiter can help you do that. You’ll be able to find out how in-demand a position like yours is, as well as what your peers are being paid. It’s the best way to stay informed about your profession and career. You might learn that your skills are in very high demand, for example, and that you’re currently being grossly underpaid. The information your recruiter gives you is the first step in rectifying that.
You’ll Build Confidence
Knowing that there are openings out there that you not only qualify for, but would thrive in, is a great confidence boost—even if you enjoy the role you’re currently employed in. Simply possessing the knowledge that there are employers out there who would be glad to have you is a great way to ensure you’re on the right track in your career, even if you’re not necessarily interested in accepting a new job.
One of the often-overlooked benefits of partnering with a recruiter is the opportunity it gives you to grow your professional network. Recruiters make it their business to develop connections with employers, hiring managers, HR professionals, and others in your industry. Growing your network by coming into a recruiter’s fold will only serve to benefit you in the future.
