WHAT CAN A PROFESSIONAL RECRUITER DO FOR YOU?

Whether you are a job seeker or a company looking to hire a qualified candidate, using a recruitment firm has definite advantages for both parties.

Simplify your search. Job hunting can be a rather time consuming process. If you are still employed, you probably have very little time to spare for an active job search. As costs associated with finding and retaining employees are on the rise, the number of employers using recruitment agencies continues to grow. This means that agencies have access to an increasing number of jobs which you wouldn’t normally hear about in the public domain. In addition, the recruiter effectively does a portion of the searching for you by keeping you in mind for positions that become available. Most recruitment agencies enjoy long standing business relationships with key clients. This can help you win an opening in a company, especially if that company has turned you down in the past.

The agency does the leg-work for you. Once the agency has your resume on file, they find suitable openings, sell your skills to employers, set up job interviews, and agree on the scope of work. When a suitable position becomes available, the recruiter will prepare you for the job interview. He or she can inform you about the job specifics and provide you with a background on the hiring company. You are still responsible for doing your own preparation, but it can be very helpful to have a professional coach you through the process.

No wasted time. The hiring company benefits from using a professional recruiter as well. The company can remain focused on their daily business activities because they do not have to spend time sorting through piles of resumes from candidates who may or may not be qualified for the job. They also can start interviewing candidates right away because a professional recruiter likely has several qualified candidates already in mind.

Flexible hiring approach. Another advantage that many hiring companies appreciate is that a professional recruiter can carry out as much or as little of the hiring process as required. Some companies like to be very hands on, while other companies prefer the more hands off approach, allowing the recruiter to find suitable candidates, conduct preliminary interviews, and even do background and evaluation tests.

Working with a professional recruiter is a win-win situation for both sides. Only candidates whose qualifications meet the job requirements exactly are referred to the hiring company for consideration, which saves the hiring company time and effort. However, the biggest advantage for both parties is that each knows the other is serious about the available position. Companies are not about to spend their money to hire a recruiter if they do not intend to follow through and hire for the position in question, which in turn is good news for the job seeker.
