A Recruiter Does So Much MORE Than Place You in a Job… They Can Help Shape Your Career

Right now, you’re working in Lehigh Valley, PA. However, the job you have isn’t something you really want to be doing. The problem is, you’re not quite sure where your career is headed and how to make the kind of changes needed to get to a place where you feel truly satisfied.

What you don’t realize, is a recruiter can help you figure this out. Providing more than just job placement services, staffing professionals are committed to helping you get ahead. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by partnering with a good one.

Five Ways a Recruiter Can Help Boost Your Career

Map Your Career Path

Knowing what you want from your professional life isn’t always easy. Your recruiter will work with you to turn your strengths and interests into a viable career path. This will ensure the next job you accept is a stepping stone to a brighter future. Instead of randomly moving between opportunities, you’ll be able to start working your way up the ladder, doing something you truly enjoy.

Write a Winning Resume

Your resume is your introduction to a hiring manager, so it has to make a great impression. If it doesn’t, it will be tossed aside before you have a chance to sell yourself for the job in person. As hiring experts, recruiters know exactly how to craft a resume that gets noticed. When you work with a staffing professional, they’ll use their expertise to help you refine your resume to ensure it makes an impact.

Prep for Interviews

It’s impossible to know what to expect in a job interview, but your recruiter will make sure you’re ready for anything that comes your way. Some of the ways they’ll be able to help include working with you to prepare responses to common interview questions, offering advice on what to wear and explaining what you’ll need to bring with you on the big day.

Gain the Right Skills

If you don’t currently have the abilities needed to be competitive in your field of choice, your recruiter will help you get caught up. They know exactly what employers want in the jobs they fill, so they’ll work with you to create a learning plan. This might involve taking a few courses or gaining the right experience in a temp job.
