For many of us, the thought of finding a new job can be daunting. To make things easier on you, consider working with a recruiter. There are many advantages for job seekers who choose to work alongside a recruiter, we have compiled our top five below.
It’s free for job seekers
There is no cost to the job seeker for using the services of a recruiter. The recruiter will be paid by the employer or client company who is using their services.
2. A recruiter saves you time
Think about how long you spend sifting through job boards and searching the internet for vacancies which suit your skillset. A recruiter who is well versed in recruiting for jobs in your industry will be aware of the market and who is hiring. This kind of information is invaluable to job seekers. Tasking a recruiter with matching you to your ideal job takes the bulk of the work out of it for you.
3. You will be supported throughout the process
A good recruiter will help you through every aspect of the application, interview and on-boarding process. This includes making improvements to your CV, preparing you for interview and assisting with the completion of documentation should you be offered the job. They will also be able to respond to queries you have along the way, which makes everything less stressful.
4. You remain in a database
Once you begin working with a recruiter, your CV will be placed in their database. They will also include a description of your skills, experience and what kind of job you are looking for. Being in the database guarantees that when a job opportunity matching your profile comes up, you will be contacted. This way, you won’t miss out!
5. You gain access to the “hidden” market
Many companies do not make use of national job boards or marketing material to promote their job vacancies. A recruiter who has a good relationship with the hiring companies they work for will know what hiring plans they have for the coming months, and will be able to offer this information to job seekers.
