Why use an Executive Recruiter to help with your job search? – Reason #7

Your recruiter’s services cost you nothing:
If a candidate has never used an executive recruiter like Key Corporate Services before, they may not be aware of how a recruiter’s services are compensated. Many people struggling to find that next job think they cannot “afford” the services of a recruiter, thinking they have to pay for such assistance.
In reality, an executive recruiter’s professional services are at no cost to you because the hiring company pays the recruiter based on a mutual agreement negotiated ahead of time.
The recruiter is compensated after a candidate is hired and has remained at the company for an agreed period of time. So, it is in the recruiter’s interest to not only work hard to find a candidate a job, but to ensure the position is a good fit for the applicant AND the company.
Since companies and not the candidates are paying search firms, a candidate has to realize recruiters are going to be focused on working with those applicants whose profiles are impressive and are a good match for existing or future job openings. They may contact a candidate if there is a position matching the candidate’s profile or ask you to recommend other people who might be interested in the job.
In either case, you will be starting the process of building a relationship with the recruiter. Every phone call or meeting will probably be noted in the firm’s database.
Using an executive recruiter like Key Corporate Services can help everyone involved. The hiring managers add value to their company, you land a position where you are content and productive, and the executive recruiter walks away with a professional reputation intact.
