Advantages of Using Staffing Agencies and Executive Search Firms in Your Job Search

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.
