Your personal career coach
When you decide to work with a staffing firm you are matched with a trained and skilled recruiter to help guide you through the entire process. They are there to listen to your career objectives. They are fully dedicated to helping you get placed with a job that best suits your experience and qualifications. Recruiters are there to help you at every stage of the job search. Your recruiter also can offer you resume advice, interview tips, and insight about the process.
Access to multiple job opportunities
Recruiters have access to a large professional network and many different job openings. They even have the ability to access jobs that have not been posted online. This gives you access to more opportunities that align with your resume and experience. Chances are that your recruiter knows what the client wants and can help prepare you for your interview or answer any questions you have. The recruiter also gives you information on everything you need such as background checks, when your interview is and the required paperwork you will need.
Manage the job process
Alone, you navigate through job postings and spend hours applying to jobs, but when you use a recruiter they completely manage the job process for you and take over the most difficult parts. They move quickly and efficiently to schedule interviews on your behalf with companies who are hiring, and they give you immediate actionable feedback about the hiring process.
Recruiters save you time
Applying to jobs can be extremely time consuming especially when you have other responsibilities on your plate. Filling out job applications is a long process that can easily lead to hours of applying to jobs and critiquing your resume, feeling like a full-time job in itself. To make matters more time consuming, applications can take weeks and sometimes months to be reviewed. For people who are students, working a job, or have other responsibilities of high importance, this process can feel impossible. The recruiter’s job is to give you inside access to companies who are hiring immediately, so that your resume sits on top of the pile.
You stay in a job search data base
Even if you don’t get selected for the job that you applied to, your time with the recruiter doesn’t end there. Your resume is stored in a database which uses an applicant tracking system to match your skills and experience with suitable job openings. When a job opens up that you’re a good fit for, your recruiter will automatically send you the job alert. This is a great way to stay up to date on new job opportunities.
