Being a modern job seeker can feel like a grind. The endless online application process – search keywords, read job description, upload resume, follow up on application – is the norm for job seekers these days. But what if it could be easier? Working with a recruiter is an underrated and under used way to help you find your next job. How can a recruiter help you with your search?
Instead of aimlessly throwing your resume to any opening, you can make more direct, intelligent choices about who you engage as a candidate. A recruiter takes time to understand your skills, experience, interest, and goals to help connect you with the opportunities that make the most sense for you. You don’t waste your time chasing down leads that turn out to be a bad fit or a dead end.
A recruiter is a specialist. They have experience placing candidates with the business you’re applying with, or at least businesses like them. They understand what people in the industry are looking for, and can help you better understand how to position yourself as a successful candidate. They can also give you pointers and tips on how to improve from one interview to the next based on feedback they can from businesses.
With a recruiter, you have one consistent contact who can help you track interviews and steps within the process. You don’t have to play phone tag or email catchup with businesses or wait weeks to hear back. A recruiter can help you stay in the know about what’s going on – even if there’s no final word back yet, a recruiter can let you know how long it might be based on their past experiences with the business or word from a direct contact at the organization. Sometimes they can even let you know where you stand in the process.
