Decided it’s time to find a new job? If your first meeting isn’t with a specialist recruiter, then you could be missing a key weapon in your job-hunting armory
and hindering your ability to secure that ideal role.

Engaging with good recruiters at the start can be extremely beneficial. They will be better connected and already know the firms that are hiring—they can offer advice on market conditions, your resume, and how to approach the interview process. Not sure if you’re being paid the right salary? They can advise on that too. The best agencies will also actively market your resume to their clients and target organizations on your behalf. Even better, there is no charge to you, as the recruiter is paid by the hiring company.

Think about which employers appeal to you and why and discuss this with your recruiter. With their industry knowledge, they can identify opportunities that are best suited to you.
