Benefits of Building a Relationship with Your Job Recruiter

04.25.23 | Job Search

When you build a relationship with your recruiter, it’s easier for them to place you in a job you will love! Here are some benefits of building that relationship and how you can go about it.

Determining What You Really Want

You may be ready for a new job but unclear on what you want to do next. Many times, the process of finding a new role begins with just a vague feeling of dissatisfaction. Recruiters are experts at matching candidates with positions, but did you know that we’re equally talented at helping job seekers figure out what they’re looking for? The more open you are with us, the easier it will be for us to help unlock the right next move for you.

Assessing Cultural Fit

Workplace culture is essential to job satisfaction, but how can we know what type of culture you’re looking for if we don’t get to know you? Whether you’re a jeans and T-shirts sort of person or more buttoned-up, if you’re the life of the party or a bit introverted, even what management style you prefer are all important clues to the workplace culture that best fits you.

Finding Just the Right Role

Once we’ve determined what you want and the type of cultural fit you need, the next step is to find just the right position. Sometimes it’s obvious, but at times it could take a bit more digging. If we have a strong relationship with you, it will be easier for us to gather all the needed information to decide which specific job is best for you. It will also make you feel more comfortable saying no to suggestions we make that simply don’t interest you.

Supporting Your Career Journey

Our relationship doesn’t have to end when we place you in a position. We’re happy to stay by your side throughout your career. Whenever you feel it is time to move on, just let us know, and we’ll help you take the next steps in your journey.

How to Develop a Strong Relationship with Your Recruiter

Building a strong relationship with your recruiter isn’t complicated. It’s mostly just a matter of honesty and openness. Tell us about yourself—not just your work background, but who you are as a person. Give us the opportunity to get to know you, and feel free to provide feedback at every step. The more you talk to us, the better we are able to do our job!
