So, you’re looking for a job, but you’re not entirely sure which direction you want to go in. You’ve sent out endless resumes, even had interviews, but nothing has come of any of it. What have you done “wrong”? What could you do differently? Should you change your approach? Expand your field? Which tactic will finally land you that frustratingly elusive job? A recruiter can help.
- They do the heavy lifting. If you have never worked with a recruiter before, doing so provides you with an expert whose job is to help you find one — one that’s the best fit for you and your employer. Rather than slogging through the social media posts, filling out repetitive applications and tailoring your resume twenty ways, working with a recruiter gives you direct access to someone who will help you craft your necessary documents in a way that showcases your talents in the best light because they have a relationship with you…and with future employers. You don’t have to go it alone.
- They thrive on your success. The most talented and successful recruiters and staffing agencies maintain their reputation based on matching candidates with employers. As such, they’ll build that relationship with you and help you clear your mind about what you want in your career…in all the intensity of looking for a job, you may have lost both your motivation and your direction (do you want to work in sales, or work with people, which are related but not the same?). Sitting down with a recruiter can help you refine and define your career path and ultimately help you find a job.
- They help break down barriers. Perhaps you’ve hit a wall with your search and you don’t know what to do next. Recruiters can break you out of that “job seeker’s block,” helping you pursue new avenues of exploration in your search. And, as pointed out, they have connections and knowledge within industries you can’t find on your own. Working with a recruiter gives you access to networks you never would have known about, therefore increasing your chances of finding what’s right for you. What started off as a path cluttered with obstacles now becomes a clearer road toward that next hire.
