Imagine if there was a way to skip the stairs and take an elevator to the top of your next job search. From exposing you to better job openings to getting you more money, don’t fall behind when recruiters are already waiting for you at the top and ready to provide you with the following benefits.
Reliable Source of Job Opportunities
Recruiters have numerous jobs that are not posted on job boards. The downside to many traditional job listings is that they just aren’t reliable. Job boards reach so many people and your resume will often end up in a pile never to be seen. It’s also not very prudent to rely on any single method during your job search. Rather, spend more time building personal connections and networking both online and offline. Working with a recruiter can give you so much more access to advancement opportunities than just searching on your own.
You Will Get More Interviews
Accounting recruiters in St. Louis have a higher chance of getting you an interview for the job that you want when they present your background to a hiring manager, versus you sending a resume to an online ad. Partnering with an accounting recruiter can even triple your chance of receiving an interview. Unfortunately, if you choose to fly solo on your job hunt, you run the risk of falling into what’s known as the application black hole and often get stuck playing a persistent waiting game. Since recruiters have direct lines of communication with many hiring managers in the region, it enables a much more streamlined process.
Better Interview Preparation
As good as you think your resume might already be, recruiters will help you to create one that is tailored for a particular company and role. Then, they will coach you on best practices for your interviews. They will also help ensure that your questions and concerns are all resolved or clarified as you navigate through the interview process.
Help You Negotiate Offers
An experienced recruiter to you is like an agent to a professional athlete. Although you might already be in high demand because you have all of the qualifications and skills for the job, it doesn’t hurt to have somebody on your side when it comes to negotiating the details of your contract. Recruiters know the company and marketplace. They also have the latest data regarding labor economics and statistics and will use it to get you the best offer possible.
