When you’re looking to make a change, you may want to consider working with a recruiter. If you get a call from a recruiter, take some time to listen and get a clear understanding of the role they’re trying to fill for their client. You may just find that you are the perfect fit.
Successful Companies Take Hiring Seriously
Great companies often retain a recruiter to seek out talent for their key hires. Successful companies take their hiring initiatives seriously. Recruiters who work in the finance sector, have an extensive understanding of the industry, salaries, and the culture. They track the ups and downs and have a long view of the market.
Avoid Falling Through the Cracks
When you submit your resume or CV to a variety of openings on your own, the Human Resources look for specific keywords, and if they are not in there, your resume can end up in the recycling bin, even if you are qualified for the job. A recruiter will sell you and your skills by showing your experience and track record.
Once they agree to interview you, the recruiter prepares you by giving you good example questions and things to think about in advance. They also give practical tips to minimize nervousness and make a great impression. They will help prep you by giving you inside information about the company, the job, and the people you are meeting, in addition to giving you general tips for a successful interview.
Once an offer is made, a recruiter will also be able to help you negotiate a better compensation package than you could on your own. This is something they do all the time, and they can help you get clarity on what you want, what you need, and keep you from over or under selling yourself.
Recruiters want to find a great, long lasting fit between the candidate and client. They are going to help you get acclimated in your new company and follow up with you to be sure everything is going well. If needed, they can always help address any miscommunication that arises between you and your new employer.
In today’s competitive job market, you need every advantage to land your next great opportunity. Taking a recruiter’s call can give you an edge over the competition with the professional expertise you need to succeed.
