You’ve been mulling the idea of a new position, new colleagues & a new challenge for months and you’ve finally agreed that now is the time to start the process of the slightly dreaded but exciting, job search.
Getting your CV updated & prepped is just the beginning. As the to-do list grows, the excitement of the adventure can quickly cease & easily be thrown in the 'to hard' basket. So, here's some points on why you need a recruiter in your life.
Recruiters recruit, every day. By partnering up with a recruiter that focuses on your specific market of skills, you’re going to get first-grade information, first-hand. They’ll be able to educate you on new organisations, team structures, who is hiring & how you can get a solid look in. You’ll be surprised at how many opportunities are out there but not listed on the traditional job boards.
Inherit a Personal Cheerleader
Your recruiter will be your biggest fan. You’ll be in the process together with the same end goal; in it to win it. They’ll promote your CV, skills & background in a customised way to ensure your application is a stand-out!
Ongoing Tips and Tricks
Interviewing can be intimidating, scary & cause major palm sweats! Talking about how great you isn't always the easiest thing. A good recruiter will have a thorough understanding of what their client is looking for & how your skills align to their requests - they’ll be able to guide you on the best way to present yourself & your knowledge as well as offer some insight of what to expect & the kind of people you'll be meeting. The inside scope can be powerful and will set your mind at ease.
The brutal truth - a recruiter is not going to represent you for an opportunity they don’t think you’re suitable for... The plus side of this; you’ll get great insights on how your skills will fit into the current market & how it compares to other job seekers. This can contribute hugely to your self-awareness & help refine your search to opportunities that are going to be the perfect challenge, but not an overkill.
