Searching for jobs is an overwhelming process. What are the best sites to use? What job matches your unique skillset? How do you even begin the process? These are questions every job seeker has running through their mind. That’s where recruiters come into play. They take out all the guess work and help you get through the job seeking process.
Here are 5 reasons you should use a recruiter while searching for your next position.
- Access to more opportunities
Recruiters speak to their clients daily or weekly – meaning they are the first to know when a new position opens, or what positions their clients are actively seeking to fill. They have insider knowledge about the company and what type of candidate they’re seeking. Recruiters are also aware of positions that may not be posted online anywhere else. Once you’re in the database, this gives you an edge to get ahead in your job search.
- Enhance your resume
It is a challenge determining what does and does not belong on your resume. How far back should your work history go? What if you don’t have much work history? When you work with a recruiter, they know what their clients want to see. They will help you get your resume in great shape for whatever jobs you’re looking to apply to.
- Better preparation for interviews
It’s no question that going into an interview is the most nerve-wracking part of the job seeking process. When working with a recruiter, they know what the client is looking for and can help you prepare prior to the client interview. One unique part of the PeopleShare recruitment process is our Interview Prep. Before the client interview, your recruiter will set up a meeting with you and run through the interview process and answer any questions or concerns you have before heading off to the client. This ensures you go into your client interview confident and prepared.
- Recruiters save you time
Think about all the hours you spent combing through job boards and reading countless job descriptions. It’s tricky to judge what jobs you’re qualified for and which one’s match what you’re looking for. Recruiters take the guess work out of the process and do this for you. A recruiter will look through their system and present jobs to you. No more searching the internet for hours a day. They take the time to learn about your work history and ideal employment and then present jobs to you that are a match. This brings us to our fifth and final point…
- Place you in the job that’s right for YOU
Recruiters work tirelessly to ensure they place you in a position that is right for you! They work with you to understand exactly what you’re looking for and find jobs that match your criteria. Recruiters want you to succeed and put in the extra work to make sure you’re in the right job.
