Candidates Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I work with a recruiter?
Working with an experienced, knowledgeable recruiter who is in tune with your market place will greatly increase your chances of locating a new opportunity. Recruiters will spend countless hours talking with clients, candidates, potential candidates and other individuals throughout the industry. Through these discussions they will make strong connections and uncover positions that you will not find using traditional resources.
Should I continue looking for opportunities on my own once I start working with a recruiter?
Absolutely! Your job search should be your top priority. You should keep in contact with your recruiter throughout your search to ensure your efforts are not being duplicated. Furthermore, an experienced recruiter may have contacts that will ensure that your information is getting to the correct person within a given organization. Call your recruiter today and update them on your search!
How many recruiters should I work with at once?
One to two recruiters in a given territory should prove extremely effective. The key is to find someone who specializes in your industry and has had proven success placing candidates with your unique skill set. Be sure to ask your recruiter about their experience in your area, the types of organizations that they work with, and about their previous placements. Don't settle if you're not satisfied.
