Working with a recruiter is one of the best ways to find a great new job, but there are a lot of misconceptions about staffing companies. One of the most prominent is recruiters just want to score a quick placement, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
As staffing professionals, recruiters take pride in connecting talented people with rewarding career opportunities. A field largely built on relationships, recruiters couldn’t stay in business if they simply placed candidates in the first job that came across their desk.
If you’re actively or passively seeking new opportunities, here are three things to know about recruiters.
- Everyone wins when you’re placed in a job you truly enjoy. Any staffing professional worth your time will not stop searching until they’ve found the right position for you. They’ll take the time to assess your skills, learn about your plans and help you determine your ideal work environment.
- When you work with a recruiter, feel confident they’re doing everything in their power to find your ideal job as soon as possible. This could happen overnight, but since they’re focused on quality, it might also take a little time.
- The more feedback you give your recruiter, the more knowledge they will have to find your perfect job. If you’re sent out on a placement that doesn’t feel right, tell the recruiter. As someone advocating for your career, the last thing your recruiter wants is for you to stay in a job you don’t enjoy because you feel obligated.
- Recruiters help you avoid the black hole of applying for jobs. Recruiters know who to talk to at the companies. Let your recruiter know if you are interested in working for a particular company.
