5 Reasons Job Seekers Should Work with a Recruiter

May 11, 2023

If you’re ready for the next step on your career path, consider working with a recruiter. Recruiting and staffing companies are the best path because they are able to communicate with both you and the hiring company. They know the available jobs inside and out and they know where you would best fit, both with your skills and the company culture. If you’re still on the fence about working with a recruiter, here are 5 reasons why you should look make that connection.


1. Save Time and Effort

It can be time consuming and yes, frustrating, to complete lengthy applications for each job opening. Recruiters can help you move through the hiring process quicker because they are already matching you with ideal jobs. They also can use your resume and you don’t have to enter your information into multiple applicant tracking systems for each position.


2. Access Better Opportunities

Recruiters often work with candidates that aren’t actively looking for a new job – and the same goes for their clients. A company may not have an open position posted publicly, but they would be willing to bring the right person on board. Recruiters have this inside knowledge and can recommend you to their clients that would be a good fit for your skills and experience.

3. Gain Professional Advice

Recruiters are industry experts who have seen it all in the job market. They know what works on a resume and how best to position yourself on paper to get an interview. They also can help you prepare for those interviews! With their understanding of what each client is looking for, the recruiter can coach you on the best way to handle your interview questions. Recruiters often can guide you on your career path and let you know what your next step should be if you have a long-term goal in mind.

4. Expand Your Network

Even if there isn’t a perfect job match for you at the moment, a recruiter will add you to their database. These databases are detailed records of each candidate that can be searched by skill, certification, degree, and more. When an ideal opportunity comes up, their search will bring you to mind and you’ll have the chance to decide if you want to pursue the position.

5. Get Compensation Assistance

Compensation and benefits can be a dealbreaker for many people. When you tell your recruiter up front what your salary requirements are, they take that into consideration. The recruiter will present matching opportunities to you, which eliminates the guessing game that may happen with a publicly posted job.
