Whether you're looking to join the workforce after a well-deserved break or planning to leave your current position, the excitement of starting a new career is often impeded by the daunting task of job searching. This is when working with a skilled recruiter can make all the difference. From helping open doors to your dream job or company to coaching you on what works and doesn’t during interview -all the tips you need during your job search.
There are many reasons why working with a recruiter might be the right move for you. While everyone's different, our experienced recruiters at Aurora Talent have repeatedly seen real value in the services they provide, where our candidates gain several benefits. Hence, here is why you should look to a recruiter for your job search:
1. They are industry-specialised experts
Most times, recruiters may specialise in a variety of industries such as technology, building materials, oil & gas, etc. They typically have past work experience in their specialisations and spend hours conducting market research so they can stay up-to-date on industry news and trends. They use this knowledge to provide candidates with valuable insight into the industry they're passionate about.
2. CV and interview advice
Recruiters always strive to provide the best candidates to their clients and are dedicated to their candidates' success. They'll prepare you for the job placement process, from reviewing CVs to offering interview strategies to set you up for success.
3. They are time efficient and keep your job hunt confidential
Some candidates may still be working full-time at their current job, but want to look for a better opportunity and may not have the time to job search on their own. Here's when a recruiter saves you time on your job search and keeps the job hunt confidential until you're ready to resign from your current company.
4. Negotiating compensation and benefits
Discussing and negotiating compensation isn’t an easy conversation for candidates to have. Having a recruiter by your side will help a lot throughout the process. Remember, recruiters only want the best for their candidates, and they're more than happy to make the effort to negotiate the best offer with their client to close the deal and make both parties happy.
5. Access to wider professional connections
When you send a CV to an HR department or hiring manager, you rely on that document to be considered for the job. But if a recruiter thinks you're a good fit for their client, you have someone to back you up. Recruiters spend lots of time making connections via databases, calls, and face-to-face networking, so working with a recruiter provides access to instant professional connections, which make all the difference in your job search.
6. You remain in a job search database
Even if candidates aren't hired for the first potential match, they stay in the recruiter's database. Recruiters will hold your CV for future opportunities and when the right opening comes along, they will reach out to you again. At Aurora Talent, we believe in developing and fostering long-term relationships with our clients and candidates. We prioritise growth for our clients’ businesses, in addition to having our candidates’ best interests at heart, even after they receive a job offer.
