Why using a good recruiter will help your career

It’s true, some recruiters suck, but some are amazing too. And the good ones will be your career coach for life.

Maybe you’ve had bad experiences.

They ghosted you after getting in touch, didn’t keep you up to date, never even acknowledged your application… the list goes on right?

Well, we’re here to say they’re not all like that.

And when you find the right one, it will be a game changer for your current & future career.

Here are six reasons why signing up with a great recruiter will be your best career choice yet.

Access to exclusive roles

You’ve heard the rumours. A huge number of roles are never advertised because recruitment teams already know a perfect fit.

By signing up with a good recruiter, you could have access to roles that will never even see the light of a job board!

Who doesn’t love a good hidden gem?!

Career advice

Let’s face it – sometimes, we don’t even know what our next step should be.

That’s when we can call in the expert advice from recruiters who have helped awesome people like you daily.

They have their ear to the ground about what’s going on in the market, upcoming projects and can set your career in the right direction.

Increase your visibility

A good recruiter can make your profile stand out.

They have established relationships with clients and can provide your resume directly to them. Meaning you get noticed & increase your chances of getting hired.

Job search advice

Good recruiters know your market & they understand how to search for the right job for you – because that’s what they do every day.

Think about it, it’s one less thing you have to worry about.

Insider knowledge

A good recruiter can accurately represent what it’s like to work for a company. How?

Because they see who’s coming and going and listen to what people say about the culture. Get the word on the street from the horse’s mouth.

They work on your behalf

They’ll also tell you how to structure your search and help you determine your next best move.

They can help you prepare for interviews, review your CV, remove awkward salary conversations and (most importantly) make sure you get paid what you’re worth.

An agency is like using a one-stop shop for your new job! And above all else, registering with Consult as a candidate is free!
