Looking for a new job? You may have heard that many employers are hiring right now and that lots of jobs are available. While this is true for some industries, the process of finding a new job is still a lot of work, especially when you’re in search of just the right job for you. After all, a job is NOT just a job… it’s where you spend the majority of your waking hours each week. And if you decide to accept a job only to discover it’s just not right for you, you’ll be right back to square one. It’s much better to find a job you’ll like for the long term.
How an Employment Firm Can Help
When it’s time to find a new house, you would probably contact a real estate agent. Why? Because real estate agents are experts in the housing market—helping you find the right house, in the right area with everything you need. Big backyard? Check! In a good school district? Check! Your real estate agent will help you check off all the boxes so once you’ve settled into your new home, you won’t want to move in another year. Moving takes tons of effort and it’s really not much fun.
Just like a house, your job is something that’s a big part of your day-to-day life, so you want to find a new job you can tolerate, and best-case scenario, one that you love! You’ll want something that fits your commuting needs (maybe you prefer to work from home, or maybe you love going into the office) and you’ll want a management style and company culture that make you feel comfortable. Maybe you prefer a fast-paced, fun environment that’s also supportive, or maybe you prefer an environment where everyone works quietly by themselves. But whatever your preference, you can explain it all to your recruiter for help finding just the right match.
Save Valuable Time
This is also an important aspect of working with any industry expert, like a real estate agent or a recruiter. When you work with an expert, you often accomplish your desired task much faster than going at it on your own. When it comes to a new job, recruiters have the inside scoop on what’s available in the job market—even jobs that are unadvertised. Many employers work exclusively with recruiters to find new workers, and these open positions never actually hit job sites like Monster or Indeed. When you work with a recruiter, you’ll also gain access to this hidden job market, opening up even more possibilities for a new job.
