If you’ve never worked with a staffing agency, you might be in for a surprise. Many common misconceptions cause people to miss out on teaming up with a recruiter, because they don’t realize what they have to gain.
Sure, you can find a new job on your own, but a staffing professional will help you find your ideal fit. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by allowing a recruiter to steer your next job search.
Recruiters Can Be Your Career Advocate
Finding the right new job is hard. When you partner with a recruiter, they do the hard work for you. They’ll help map your ideal career path, offer tips to update your resume and search through job postings to find those that meet your needs. Having an expert in your corner is an invaluable tool that can launch your career to heights you never imagined.
They Don’t Just Help You Find Temp Work
Many people think recruiters only fill temporary positions, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In addition to temp roles, your staffing partner can connect you with temp-to-hire and direct hire positions; just let them know what you’re looking for and they’ll filter their results accordingly.
They Can Connect You With Exclusive Opportunities
Filling open positions with the right people is hard work. Consequently, many companies only hire through staffing agencies. This means if you’re not working with a recruiter, you’ll probably never even know a job was available. It’d be a shame to miss out on your dream job because you didn’t want to take on a staffing partner.
Job Seekers Don’t Pay a Dime
Recruiters do a lot for candidates, so people often assume these services come with a fee, but they don’t. It might be hard to believe, but it’s true — staffing agencies assist job seekers for free. If you can get professional assistance with your search at absolutely no cost to you, it only makes sense to accept it.
