Getting back on the horse, if you’ve been out of work for a while, can seem like a difficult task. You may be out of practice when it comes to putting together a great resume, for example, and certainly, your interview skills may be rusty. What’s the best way to brush up on these skills, so you don’t leave good opportunities behind? The answer is to work with a recruiter. Here’s how a staffing agency can help you get back to work.
Benefits of Getting Back to Work with a Recruiter
Recruiters offer job seekers a free service that connects you with top employers. Sure, you have a social network but do you know how to work it properly to find a great job? Recruiters do. In fact, we spend all day building our networks, so you don’t have to. Recruiters specialize in knowing when and where the best jobs are and have great connections with hiring managers in your field.
Wants, Needs and Priorities
The process starts with a discussion about your wants, needs, and priorities. Recruiters like the ones at Lingo Staffing work hard to get to know candidates so that we can find them the kind of culture in which they excel. Together, we discuss what matters to you, including your goals and experiences. What kind of job will not only get you back to work but do it in a way that benefits you and your family? Some of the questions a good recruiter should ask include:
- What matters to you in your next job?
- What are your goals for this role?
- Do you want to work for a large or small company?
- What kind of culture do you feel comfortable in?
- What are your salary expectations?
Finding a Job That Fits
Reentering the workforce can bring with it a sense of nervousness or even dread. You know there is competition, and you may be worried that you don’t have the right skills for the job you want. Don’t worry, a good recruiter will conduct an assessment of your skills and help you find a job that fits. Or, they will be candid about areas where you need to work on your skills to help make you a more appealing candidate to the company you’re interested in joining. They can also take a look at your resume and make recommendations that will improve it to give you a better shot at getting an interview.
Speaking of interviews, we know that the idea of interviewing with a stranger for a job will feel out of place after you’ve been off the market for a while. A recruiter can help you in this area too; after all, you’ll practice interviewing with the recruiter before you actually get to meet the hiring manager of the company you’re applying to. Most recruiters will prep you for the interview process by talking through what matters to that hiring manager. The idea is that the recruiter is investing their time in preparing you to do well in the interview. But the interviewer also turns around and recommends you to the employer. It’s a helpful service for any candidate, but particularly for anyone returning to work.
