4 Reasons You Should Work with a Recruiter

Job interview in progress

Ready to level-up your job search? Start working with a recruiter! Working with a recruiter, like an EG recruiter, means you will spend less time scouring job boards and filling out applications as well as have an advocate through the job search process, access to more jobs, and more! When you work with a recruiter, you’ll get a leg up on the outside competition. Ready to learn more? Here are four reasons you should work with a recruiter.

Who Should Use a Recruiter?

Recruiters can serve a job seeker at any level in their career or skill level. Different recruitment firms focus on various industries or career levels their recruiters recruit for, so do your research before applying. For example, if you’re looking for an entry-level or mid-level position, you’ll want to find a recruitment agency that caters to those needs. Likewise, if you’re looking for a specific leadership position within a particular industry, you’ll want to find a recruitment firm that is partnered with that industry. So no matter your background, skill-level, or career path, everyone who wants to enhance their job search could use a recruiter on their side.

You’ll Save Time Job Searching

Applying for jobs online is time-consuming and often a monotonous task. Working with a recruiter can be a major time saver for your job search! With a recruitment agency, like EG, you would fill out one application that then goes into our system for our recruiters to use to match you with position options they believe would be a good fit for you.

To put it simply, recruiters are aware of what jobs are available, and they know you’re looking. The recruiter can devote large amounts of time to making sure those jobs are filled with candidates like you.

You’ll Have an Advocate in Your Job Search

Working with a recruiter also means you’ll gain an advocate in your job search. A recruiter can be your advocate in improving your resume, portfolio, and other application documents to help you stand out from other candidates, especially when it comes to competitive or direct-hire positions.

They can also coach you on interviewing best practices, and, after an interview with the employer, the recruiter will give you feedback. Your recruiter is an advocate for your job search success!

You’ll Stay in a Database

If you apply for a job through a recruitment firm and don’t get an offer, the good news is that the recruiter will be able to keep your info and application documents in their database. This means if another position you’d be a great candidate for becomes available, your recruiter will already have your information ready to go. This means you can rest assured your resume or application isn’t “tossed” if the original position doesn’t work out.

Recruitment firms also use applicant tracking systems that make sorting candidates easy. The software pulls specific information from your resume and matches it to relevant jobs. When the right opening comes along, it’s likely your resume will surface. So again, when you work with a recruiter, you can feel confident your information won’t get lost in a pool of candidates.

You’ll Have Access to More Jobs

You might think you’re seeing all the available jobs when you search job boards or social media sites. This may not be a complete picture though! Recruiters work with companies directly to fill positions so they may be aware of more opportunities that are not posted.

Recruiters will give you access to jobs that are hard to find through a solo job search. Since recruitment firms work directly with companies, they can provide you with access to jobs that are not advertised or not posted on the internet. With more options to apply to, you have a better chance of receiving the job offer you want.

Whether you’re looking for a new job or wanting to make a change in your career, working with a recruiter is a great way to land a great position. Your recruiter wants to see you succeed; in fact, that’s our mission here at EG, Helping People Succeed. Working with a recruiter will save your time in your job search, provide you an advocate; you’ll stay in the firm’s database, and you’ll have access to more job opportunities.
