Choosing the right recruitment partner as a candidate can have a really significant impact on your career if you get it right.
Parting with it with a good recruiter can be a career long relationship (heaven forbid) that can provide significant benefits, these can include:
- Market Intel.
- Career advice and counsel.
- They will be able to unearth, hidden, off market opportunities for you which might advance your career.
- Act as a sounding board during decision making or times of uncertainty.
Getting it wrong can have the opposite effect, and can be highly career damaging. Recruitment gives itself a bad name by the recruiters who don’t care about what they do. Examples include the candidates CV appearing on the current managers desk.
If you’re considering who to partner with, long term market reputation and recommendation of those recruitment partners are the sort of key things that you need to look out for.
