Not Loving Your Current Job? Why You Should Partner with A Recruiter

Wondering why some job candidates are more successful than others? Chances are that job seeker that just got hired has the competitive edge because they choose to work with a recruiter. Recruiters are the hidden resource behind some of the best jobs and highest salaries out there. What could a recruiting firm like ADD STAFF do this year to help you meet your career goals?

Not Loving Your Current Job?

If you’re not loving your current job, you’re not alone. In 2021, 47 million Americans voluntarily quit their jobs. The unprecedented mass quit was known as the Great Resignation. Employers faced worker shortages in almost every industry. But the Harvard Business Review says this wasn’t a short-term event but rather “a continuation of a long-term trend.” They say the average monthly resignation rate has been quietly increasing by .10 percentage points every year since 2009.

If you’re a job seeker, what this means for you is that you will face lots of competition from other potential employees who, like you, want to find a better job. How can you stand out from the crowd of people looking to better themselves this year? The answer is simple: Partner with a recruiter.

Reasons to Work with a Recruiter in 2023

Recruiters are the secret weapon of the successfully hired job candidate. There are several benefits to partnering with a recruiter for your job search:

  • Access to unadvertised jobs: Recruiters often have access to job openings not advertised elsewhere. This gives you opportunities to apply for positions that might not be widely available or even known about by other job seekers.
  • Industry knowledge: Recruiters are both well-connected and knowledgeable about the industries they represent. They can provide you with valuable market insight as well as behind-the-scenes details about the employers you’re considering.
  • Resume review: Think about it. Recruiters see dozens of resumes every week. What better person to evaluate your CV for clarity, typos, or even how well it will stand out against other job candidates. A recruiter can review your resume and offer suggestions for improvement, helping to increase your chances of getting noticed by potential employers.
  • Interview prep: Recruiters often have the inside scoop on what hiring managers are looking for in job candidates. Recruiters can give you advice and support on how to present your skills and experiences in the best possible way to get the attention of your interviewer.
  • Salary negotiation assistance: Recruiters know the kinds of salaries out there in your chosen field. They can offer you valuable insight into what kind of pay is appropriate for the market and possible for a specific employer.
  • Career guidance: Good recruiters are also job coaches. They can offer advice, such as whether it would be helpful to seek out additional training or how to break into a new career path.
