Experience. Staffing agencies and executive search firms understand the job search process. The average professional changes jobs every three years and is out-of-touch with current market conditions. The job market can change drastically since the candidate was last seeking employment. Many candidates mistakenly believe the market is the same and are caught by surprise. Recruitment firms are frequently placing candidates so they understand which skills have high demand and can help job seekers navigate through the market and experience less challenges.

Feedback. One of the most frustrating parts of a job search is not receiving any feedback. Many candidates submit their resume and never hear from the employers the reasons they aren’t a good fit. When you work with executive search firms and recruiting agencies, you’re able to get more access to this information and improve your job search. Many times, the recruiter has been working with the hiring manager for many years and understands the skills they’re looking for that aren’t listed on the job description.

Additional Job Opportunities. Job seekers can find jobs opportunities that they wouldn’t be able to find themselves. This is because a staffing agency not only has more experience, but some jobs are given exclusively to them. Many times clients will go to an executive search firm before going to the general market. Staffing agencies have access to the “hidden job market.” Sometimes, hiring managers will ask agencies to fill positions that even people at the company aren’t aware of. A staffing agency may pitch a candidate they know the company would be interested in even when there isn’t a formal opening. Employers will make a new position for exceptional candidates.

Specialization – Recruiting agencies and executive search firms have experience placing many people over the years. They know where to source candidates from and ask the important questions to see if the candidate is the right fit. Staffing agencies will also run background checks and follow up with references. A good recruitment firm will have a proven track record of success and usually offer a guaranteed replacement period too.

Saves Time – Hiring people can be time consuming, especially when a company has to sort through many un-qualified applicants responding to job ads online. This takes away time and focus from the company’s current projects. Hiring a recruiter will allow company management to focus on what they do best and let them only spend time interviewing the best-fitting candidates.

Screening – Executive search firms will conduct preliminary interviews before they present you a candidate. They will fact-check the resume and ask detailed questions about the role the person played inside the company. If there are any job requirements not mentioned in the resume, a recruiting agency will find out if the candidate has those skills but happened to not list them in their resume.

Access to the Best – Recruitment agencies will have access to the best talent in the market. Recruitment firms will have their own database of candidates to source from. Many of these candidates will not be submitting their resumes to job ads online because they’re too busy being successful at their current company and not actively looking. Recruiting agencies will call candidates at competing companies and convince them to consider taking a career change. If a company did this themselves, not only would it damage their brand but it would most likely take longer as well because they have other duties and priorities other than just recruit. Many times a staffing agency will bring you more qualified candidates and do it faster than a company can do themselves.
