It takes a lot of organization and effort to find a job. Whether you are reentering the workforce or just looking for a different job, it’s not easy to scour the job boards online, network, do research, update your resume, and so on.
While we don’t want to ever discourage anyone from searching for the right job, if you feel like you continue to send out applications without getting noticed, or can’t even find the right jobs to consider, working with a recruiter might be a better option for you.
A Recruiter’s Job is to Find Companies the Right Fit
If you didn’t already know, or need a refresher, you should remember that a recruiter’s job is not to find you a job. They are hired by companies to find the best candidate for the open positions. This is an advantage for a job seeker because when a recruiter thinks you’d be a good fit, they mean it. They’re not just trying to find you work, they’re trying to find you a job that you would excel in for the long haul.
How a Recruiter Can Give You Job Prospects
If you’ve never thought of working with a recruiter before, consider how one can help you in these simple, but effective ways.
They will save you time
A recruiter often works in specific industries and sometimes in certain locations as well. This means that when you work with a recruiter, they know which jobs are available in those industries and locations, eliminating much of the time you spend narrowing down your job search.
A recruiter will help you
When you work with a recruiter, they will also help you through any questions you might have and help you improve your resume and portfolio. Since a recruiter wants to find the best fit for their companies, they also want to make sure that the candidates they’re choosing from are sharp and at their best. A recruiter will help answer your questions in addition to making yourself look your best to employers, which is invaluable.
They can find a place for your specialties
You may consider yourself a well-rounded, can-do-anything type of worker. Or you may think you are better suited in a specialty. Either way, it can be hard to find a job on your own. A recruiter can take your specific skill set, your specialties, your niche and find you a company that has that precise staffing need.
You stay in a trusted database
Just because you begin a partnership with a recruiter, doesn’t mean you’ll get a call immediately. The positive side of that is that you will stay in a recruiter’s database so that when the best opportunity comes their way, they can connect with you. Stay in touch with your recruiter to update your profile, seek advice if needed, or to modify your professional goals so you can be considered for the best job.
