Recruitment consultants will help you find your next dream job!
“But why would it benefit me? I can find my own job.” I hear you ask, valid point. But I would say, “Read on, here are five reasons to use a recruitment consultant that may well change your mind.”
Reason 1 – Greater Exposure to Different Roles
If you think you can find all job openings on job boards or company websites, think again – not all job offers are advertised. Sometimes companies are working exclusively with recruiters to find their ideal candidates. By working with a recruiter, you may find that roles you never imagined were available. Who doesn’t want to be the first to know about a great role?!
Reason 2 – More Visibility of Market Changes
Although you may think that you know everything you need to know about the life sciences market in your sector, there are still things you won’t know. But…. Recruiters get first-hand knowledge from the different clients they work with, meaning they have a fairly good idea of what is happening in the ecosystem from different perspectives. If you are looking for your next role, it can be very beneficial to have a recruiter’s knowledge of the market.
Reason 3 – Access to Recruiters Network of Contacts
Recruiters not only work with many clients, but also have a vast network of candidates they have worked with before you. Sometimes these candidates have been placed in positions where they are now the hirer. Thanks to the great service they received, they know and trust the recruiter. If your skills match what the hirer wants, chances are you will be a shoe in for an interview because you have been recommended by someone they trust.
Reason 4 – Positive Representation and Coaching – CV/Networking/Social/Personal Branding
A great recruiter helps you not only find a new role, but also to guide you through the process. Remember that recruiters know exactly what their customers are looking for, they can help you become the perfect candidate for the job.
Reason 5 – A Recruiter Will Always Be Looking on Your Behalf – Actively or Passively
Yes, recruiters reach out to candidates for certain roles, but they could also reach out to you because they believe they will one day have something that would be perfect for you. So please, if a recruiter calls, do not automatically assume they have an opportunity there and then.
They may not, but they have reached out to you because they believe you are a great candidate. They want to get to know you, learn your skills and what you are looking for in your next role. Be honest, take the time to explain the most important things in your perfect role. Become part of their network and when that perfect role appears – you will be the first to know!
So there are five reasons why you can benefit as a life science professional from working with a recruiter.
