Can a Recruiter Help Me Find a Job…If I’m Busy and Working Full-Time?

Finding a great new warehouse job in Lehigh Valley is hard work, but even more challenging when you’re trying to fit it into an already busy life. Right now, you’re working full-time and have plenty of other responsibilities on top of that, making your job search feel almost impossible.

What you might not realize is a recruiter can serve as a much-needed ally. Here’s what you have to gain by delegating many of your job search activities to a staffing professional, so you can keep doing it all.

Three Reasons to Partner With a Recruiter If You’re Busy and Working Full-Time

Let Someone Else Do the Legwork

Searching online for new warehouse opportunities can be incredibly time-consuming. Checking various job boards and company websites on a daily basis requires you to push other tasks that need your attention to the side. However, this isn’t the case when you work with a recruiter. They’ll take the lead on your job search, scouring their network for opportunities that match your skills, experience, and career goals, leaving you time to focus on other priorities.

Don’t Waste Time on Dead-End Interviews

When navigating a warehouse job search on your own, it can be hard to learn much about a position until the interview stage. However, you’ve likely arrived at several interviews only to quickly realize the job, the company, or both are not right for you. This means you took time out of your busy day — and likely off work — for nothing.

Working with a recruiter can help you largely avoid this situation because you won’t be going in blindly. They carefully screen each opportunity presented to you and frequently have existing relationships with the companies, allowing you to avoid wasting time.

Stop Making Mistakes Hindering Your Search

Applying for warehouse jobs is a very time-consuming process. These days, you need to tailor your resume and cover letter for each opportunity, which requires a lot of effort. It’s possible you’re making mistakes like using the wrong resume format, not quantifying bullet points, or failing to highlight the right skills and experience, which is causing you to keep getting passed up.

Your recruiter will carefully review your resume, then help you fix any errors holding you back. This will help your resume get noticed, allowing you to get hired faster.
