When it comes to finding a new job, having an executive recruiter in your corner gives you a heads up over the competition. Among the many benefits is this one;
He will step you through the entire hiring process
Being hired today usually involves many small steps. Gone are the days when companies kept small HR departments that were readily accessible and allowed your first contact to be an actual interview resulting in a quick job offer. Today, a job hunter has to navigate a myriad of hurdles before a job offer is received.
As such, an executive recruiter can be a real asset in steering you in the right direction to a successful job offer. It’s worthwhile to stress a couple of important game rules here. Keep in mind, a recruiter may dispense job search advice, but most of his or her time is spent finding the right fit for the client, the employer. And , realize that the executive recruiter is essentially working for the client company — and they’re often working on multiple placements at any given time.
They can match your specialized skills to target positions.
There is a distinct advantage to having a third party assist in finding “target” positions. It’s their job to know companies looking for your specialized background. They may know about opportunities you will never know about.
They can walk you through the entire hiring process, step-by-step
All those steps along the way to a new job are helped by the services of a recruiter. From the interview where they can advise the key points and approach that needs to be emphasized, to negotiations, to the resignation from our old position and transition into your new position, the recruiter is there to help.
And, the recruiter is there to manage all of your communications with hiring managers and/or human resources professionals. So, don’t be intimidated by executive recruiters. They can be a great partner in your search.
