Top 5 Reasons to Work with an Agency Recruiter

1. They Can Answer Questions You’re Too Afraid to Ask

We’ve all been there – you have a job interview coming up that you’re trying to prepare for, but you have no idea what to expect. What are the most important things to know about the company? What are the hiring managers like? What questions should you ask? What should you wear?

Working with a recruiter allows you to have an insider’s point of view into the hiring process. Your recruiter has likely prepared candidates for interviews with your desired company dozens of times, which allows them to know the ins and outs of that specific interview process. So if you’ve ever had a question that you’re just too afraid to ask during an interview, ask your recruiter – you might be surprised at what you can learn to set yourself up for success.

2. They Want You to Succeed

Unlike applying directly to a company and working with their HR team throughout the hiring process, working with an agency recruiter ensures their full attention is on you, allowing you to put your best foot forward. Recruiters also benefit from you getting hired, and they’ll do whatever they can to help you win the role of your dreams.

As long as you want the job, your recruiter wants you to get the job, and they’ll do everything in their power to make it happen.

3. You’ll Gain Access to Unlisted Job Opportunities

Job hunting can get pretty tiresome when you’re seeing the same roles for the same companies posted on every job board across the internet. This is a major benefit to seeking out a recruitment agency. Due to client confidentiality, your recruiter may have access to dozens of jobs that aren’t advertised to the general public, and often for highly specialized positions. Take care to select an agency that recruits for roles in your field, and you’ll have a selection of highly desired open jobs that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

4. You’ll Have Job Hunting Resources at Your Disposal

Do you want to learn almost every job search trick in the book? An agency recruiter is your best bet. They’ll know the ins and outs of the job market, have insider knowledge about current trends in your industry, and have the ability to link you up with top notch resources to help simplify your job search and make the process as streamlined as possible.

Your recruiter will be able to help you with resume formatting and optimization, interview tips, market trends, and everything in between. If your ultimate goal is to land the best job you can get, working with a recruiter is the way to do it.

5. They’re With You All the Way

Whether you’re a first-time contractor, long-term permanent employee searching for a new opportunity, or the most seasoned consultant out there, starting a new role can be daunting. This is where your recruiter can play a huge part in your overall success at a new company. They’ll act as a liaison for you to celebrate your victories, voice your concerns, and share your thoughts about how your job is going, even in the weeks and months following your original placement. Your relationship with your recruiter can be one that develops throughout the course of your professional career, and it’s hugely beneficial great to have someone in your corner throughout the ups and downs of your job search.
