Digging into the job market can feel like an overwhelming task, but you don’t have to face it alone. Working with an exceptional recruiting firm can help you find a better fit with a great company in less time.
Your recruiting firm’s job is to match you with a position that fits your skills and experiences and that also supports and advances your career goals. Your recruiter works closely both with you and with client employers. When a position appears for which you are exceptionally qualified, your recruiter presents your qualifications and value proposition to the hiring employer, helping you “get a foot in the door”, advocating for you and improving your chances of getting an interview and a job offer.
Why should you work with a recruiter? Consider these four qualities of recruitment consulting firms:
- They’re experts in their industries. Sales and marketing recruiters make it their business to know what’s going on in the industry, who the key players and rising stars are, and where the next great job openings are likely to be. They leverage this knowledge to help you find a sales or marketing position that fits you.
- Their connections alert them to job openings you may not find. Many job openings are never made public, or are announced publicly only after the search has been underway for some time. While you may never hear of a plum marketing or sales position at a solid but little-known company, your recruiter probably will – and will be able to help you pursue your career dreams.
- They often have professional connections at the very firms you most want to work for. The depth of most recruiters’ networks should never be underestimated. Because many sales and marketing recruiters started in the business, they have connections with many of the key companies and departments in the field. Your recruiter may even be able to introduce you personally to the hiring managers at your dream company.
- They offer career and job-seeking advice. While matching top sales and marketing candidates to suitable employers is an SMR Group recruiter’s primary concern, it is never our only concern. We’ll also review your resume, offer interview coaching and tips, and help you improve your job-seeking process so you land a better job in less time.
