IS NETWORKING ENOUGH? THREE REASONS TO USE A RECRUITER..

There are people who rely on the power of networking to help them find their next job opportunity. But sometimes tapping into your network is easier said than done (not to mention a little stressful). If you’re in need of some help in the next step of your career, why not consider working with a recruiter?

A RECRUITER IS YOUR…

CONNECTION
A recruiter’s client network consists of hiring managers and decision-makers who entrust the recruiter to find the right candidates for their open positions. With established relationships, a recruiter can facilitate a successful resume presentation on your behalf and help you get your foot in the door.

CAREER PARTNER
As a partner in your job search, the recruiter offers resume advice, interview preparation, and compensation negotiation. They also discuss the job duties and responsibilities in detail to determine if the company job and culture is an ideal fit for you.

ADVOCATE
A recruiter can exert influence on a hiring manager to consider your qualifications and schedule an interview, even when your previous work experience may not be the most perfect match. As your spokesperson, they bring to light additional qualities that may be worth the manager’s time to meet with you.

Spending hours matching good jobs with great candidates, the process a recruiter takes is extremely time-consuming. Many job seekers don’t have the luxury of time, and the experience or desire to market themselves completely and successfully. That’s where a great recruiter can come in and perform what they do best.

So the next time you find yourself looking for a new position, consider the benefits of using an experienced recruiter, and have them do some of the job search work – and networking – for you!
