The Benefits of Using a Recruiter

Most people are aware that recruiters exist but are not fully aware of the benefits of using one. A recent blog post by Evelyn Amaro addresses this issue and outlines five reasons why recruiters can be invaluable.
  1. Recruiters have access to a hidden job market. You can search and search the online job boards, but you will never be able to find a lot of the positions that recruiters are working on.
  2. Recruiters have connections. Your resume could very easily end up in a massive pile, never to be seen again, if you blindly submit it to HR. However, recruiters have direct access to these same people and can ensure your resume is considered.
  3. Recruiters have expertise. Professional recruiters understand the job market and how you fit into it. They are a great resource for strategic career planning.
  4. Recruiters have the same goal as you. They want to get you into a great position just as badly as you want to be in one. Amaro reminds us that recruiters are on the job seeker’s side.
  5. Recruiters can be your long-term ally. Not only can they help you find a new position, but they can also help down the road if you decide you’re ready to move on to something more challenging.
