If you’ve ever had to search for a new job, you know it can be tedious. So why wouldn’t you want a partner in this process?
Unfortunately, there are some misconceptions when it comes to job seekers partnering with a recruiter. A recruiter, or a staffing company, can in fact be a great ally in your job search. Below is a short list of the ways your job next search can benefit from working with a recruiter.
1) A Foot in Many Doors
One of the most aggravating aspects of a job search is attempting to get a foot in the door at a company. Even if you have a direct connection to a hiring manager, odds of even getting a response to an application are against you.
A staffing company, on the other hand, has a large network of connections, generally inside a specific industry. As soon as you begin collaborating with a staffing company, they will deliver your resume to their contacts who may be interested in you. This significantly boosts the chances of someone making contact with you about a job opportunity.
2) Access to Non-Public Open Positions
Employment agencies normally have access to open positions that have yet to be shared publicly. Because these unposted jobs are only accessible through the recruiter, you may have access to them on your own.
3) Interview Support
Because the recruiter wants you to perform well in an interview that they have set up for you, they will thoroughly prepare you for it. Just having someone on your side can make the interview and even the entire process less stressful.
4) Better Compensation Fit
A staffing company typically knows the salary and benefits for the opportunities its offering. They also know the compensation you deserve. This situation significantly reduces the guesswork and negotiation typically involved in a hiring process.
5) High-Quality Fit
If you’ve already spent months looking for a new job, you might be at the point where you just take a position that looks okay, hoping it will work out for the best.
The odds of things not working out are much lower with a staffing company. A recruiter is highly motivated to find a job that is a solid fit for you and the business. This situation is likely to be a winning situation for all parties involved.
6) A Certain Level of Discreetness
If you’re currently employed, the last thing you want is your employer to find out you’re looking for a new job. With a staffing company, you have the advantage of someone working behind the scenes to find a job for you. Recruiters realize the significance of confidentiality in a job search and they make certain that potential employers are the only ones who know you are looking for a new job.
