Why should you spend your time working with a recruiter in your job search? There are many reasons but here are just a few:
Opportunities in Large Organizations
Typically “high level opportunities at large corporations are filled by having connections within the institution.” Part of a recruiter’s job is to maintain relationships with hiring managers and executives in the organizations in your industry.
“Recruiters can obtain both the human resource department’s level of urgency in hiring someone, as well as identify the number of candidates who have already applied.” Recruiters are working on your behalf and want you to succeed; they’ll do what they can to move your resume to the top of the applicant pile.
