Are you one of the 51% of Americans actively looking for a new job or the many more who are open to new job opportunities? You may search through popular jobs sites, scour LinkedIn or attend networking events, but to no avail.
Have you considered how connecting with an executive search firm could augment your efforts?
Also known as headhunters, hiring agencies, and staffing consultants, the goal of any executive recruiter is to find the best qualified candidates for their clients. If you have valuable experience or a competitive skillset, firms like Ciresi & Morek are interested in finding you a good, well-paying job.
If you’re in the market for a new job, here are seven reasons to consider working with an executive search firm.
1. Find The Right Job Faster (While You Do Less Work)
Finding a new job can be a full-time job. For recruiting agencies, connecting the right candidates with the rights jobs is their full-time job.
Just as years of experience and training make you qualified for your current and future job, executive search firm professionals have a wealth of experience and insight that makes us highly qualified to find and put you in a position to land a better position.
2. We Know The Industry and Job Market
Often, executive search firms work within a specific industry or market. Our day-to-day interactions with clients and candidates give us keen insight into who is getting hired, why and for how much. We also find out about the latest openings faster than you may on your own.
Use us to gain a competitive edge over the rest of the job market, while staying focused on the most realistic and attainable job opportunities.
3. Employed? Maintain Confidentiality While Considering Opportunities
According to a survey conducted by Future Workplace and Beyond, 80% of HR professionals believe those currently employed—“passive job seekers”—become the most effective employees. The old adage, “it’s easier to land a job while you have a job,” bears some truth.
But the question is: how do you navigate a job search without causing suspicion from your current employer?
Recruiting agencies guarantee confidentiality. While you stay engaged at work, we are hard at work evaluating candidates for dozens of opportunities.
4. We Are Professional Negotiators
Executive recruiters are full-time negotiators. Once a candidate matches the needs of the employer, we can work with you to ensure you get the best compensation, benefits, and, if necessary, relocation package.
5. Get the Insider Scoop Before an Interview
Many executive recruiting firms regularly work with the same employers. This means we have insider knowledge on the company and potential interviewer, including what they look for in candidates and some insight into how they interview.
The best recruiters sit down and prepare you for an interview, so you can put your best foot forward, and the hiring company can see the most polished version of you.
6. Receive Professional Feedback You Wouldn’t Get Otherwise
You just walked out of an interview thinking it went great. Then, a few days later you receive the generic, “thanks but no thanks” email.
Since recruiting agencies are in ongoing contact with the employer, we can get real feedback about your interview, and in turn share both the good and bad with you.
Did you lack the required experience? Was there someone more qualified? Or was it how you answered a specific question? Whatever the reason, a good recruiting firm will always give you the brutally honest feedback needed to nail the next interview.
7. Search Firms Cost Candidates Nothing
Who pays an executive search firm? The employer. All of these advantages listed above are provided to quality candidates free-of-charge.
