What to know when using a recruiter for your job search

 

A common misconception is that job seekers contact a recruiter to find them a job. In reality, recruiters work for employers who task them with finding the best candidate for their particular job. When you contact Travel Placement Service to assist you with your job search, you can expect our team to interview you and assess your abilities as to whether you would be a good fit for our “current” job openings or perhaps a great talent to add to our database for “future” opportunities.

 

Because time is usually of the essence, we ask those who engage with us to be prepared, organized, and ready to put their best foot forward. What does that mean? For starters, having a current resume that accurately depicts who you are. What are your skills, accomplishments and career history?  What makes you stand out from the other candidates? And what is your desired career path? If you need assistance creating your resume, check out this article from Forbes: Five Resume Rules You'll Be Glad You Broke.

 

The best way to build a successful relationship is to do the necessary groundwork in advance and to use your time with us to sell your story. Understanding your recruiter, and ensuring they understand you, is a great first step in successfully working together and will go miles to help your job search. And should you be the right fit, know that Travel Placement Service will do everything in our power to make sure you are successfully hired. Ready for a career change?
