Work, work, work, work, work.
When you can’t face Mondays anymore, you hate your boss, and you need a new challenge, partnering with a recruiter can change everything.
Why go it alone in the quest to land your next gig? Even if you are supremely confident, uber-dazzling, and one of the best in your field, you still won’t have access to the hidden, unpublished job openings as recruiters.
The perfect position may never be made public on Seek or LinkedIn, and if you are not partnering with a recruiter in your job search then you could be missing out. Here are five reasons you need a good recruiter in your life:
1. Working with a recruiter is FREE!
Yes, that’s right. If a recruiter finds you a job, you don’t have to pay them a cent. But they will be working tirelessly behind the scenes to uncover an opportunity that is just right for you.
2. You’ll get objective and honest advice
A recruiter will help you polish and refine your resume, assist you in tidying up your LinkedIn profile, and give you expert tips on how to slay in your interview.
3. Recruiters have a specialised network
Recruiters have their own niche networks and direct access to multiple companies that desire your particular skills and experience. They can quickly send your resume (with your permission, of course) to their clients for consideration, and set up interviews with speed.
4. A recruiter keeps the process moving
Ever been stuck waiting for feedback on your latest interview? Partnering with a recruiter means you‘ll be in the loop the whole time. Recruiters may even have the power to speed up the decision-makers.
5. They’ll have the hard conversations on your behalf
Recruiters can help negotiate your ideal salary and start date so you don’t have to miss out on the holiday you’ve had booked for months. These things are often hard to discuss during the interview process.
If you’re struggling in your job search, do yourself a favour and reach out to a specialised recruiter who can assist you in landing your dream role!
