Why working with a recruiter works

If you’re looking for a new job, you don’t have to search on your own. Collaborating with a reputable recruiter can make your job search easier and can benefit your career by giving you access to a professional who can share insights on local employers and the talent landscape.

The following are several benefits a recruiter can offer during your next job search:

  • Help you find an organization that is a strong culture fit
  • Share salary expectations for your skills and experience
  • Help you understand various career paths and how to achieve your career goals
  • Provide access to opportunities that are not advertised
  • Share information on opportunities with companies that you may not have previously considered
  • Offer feedback on your resume
  • Assist in interview preparation and provide typical interview questions and formats
  • Help you understand the company and the people you will meet during the interview
  • Share information about a specific role that might not be included in the job description
  • Help you be part of a small applicant pool
  • Provide you with frequent communication, fast responses, and candid feedback
  • Help you evaluate and negotiate a job offer
  • Counsel you on resigning from your current role

Generally, recruiters are not paid until a company successfully hires for their role. As a result, it is a recruiter’s goal to place the best candidate into the position for a solid match. And, because recruiters are paid by the companies, there is no cost to candidates. What do you have to lose?
