Looking for a job can be a full-time effort. Uploading resumes, writing cover letters, endless searches on job boards. A recruiter can be an amazing resource in your job search. Here’s why an IT recruiter might be the secret weapon to advancing your career.
- Better Connections: Applying for a job online is hit or miss. The chances of hearing back from a company about a position you feel you’re qualified for really depend on too many factors to feel confident about moving along in the process. Using a recruiter means they’re going to pass on your information to someone who wants to hire and trusts the recruiter to only suggest qualified candidates. This increases your chances of getting that initial interview.
- Interview Prep: A recruiter will often interview candidates to get to know them, but also to work through questions and concerns that a candidate has about interviewing with a company. The recruiter likely knows the company well and certainly is familiar with the position, so they can help you understand what to focus on and how to frame your experience in a conversation with a hiring company.
- Better Feedback: Recruiters are going to follow up with the hiring manager or interviewer after you meet with them to get their feedback. Whether it’s positive or negative, a recruiter can report back to you what worked and what didn’t, so you can learn from your experience.
- Access to More Openings: Some companies work with recruiters before they ever post a job online. These jobs, therefore, are only available when working through a recruiter, giving you access to hiring managers when they’re still excited about the search and not worn out after dozens of rounds of interviews.
