Recruiting firms target the placement of highly qualified candidates into roles needed by their clients. But if you’ve never worked with a recruiter, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. Are there valid reasons to engage with a recruiting firm? Here are just a few reasons why you should consider using a recruiter for your next search.

Access to a Passive Market

Recruiters have a laser-focus on highly skilled candidates who are a good fit for the job. They are reaching out to the best candidates who happen to be passive candidates, or those prospects who are not looking for a job. These candidates are happily employed, but once they are presented with the opportunity by a recruiter, they are open to considering the move.

Market Expertise

Recruiting firms have one job, and that’s finding the right candidate for the right position. Most recruiters specialize in a certain area and they are market masters in their niche. That means they have extensive expertise in the market and have a finger on the pulse of exactly what’s going on in those areas. Recruiters have the knowledge of what other companies are hiring for, compensation, and what candidates are looking for.

Specialized Resources

HR departments would normally be swamped by hundreds of resumes they collect in response to an ad. Recruiters are highly selective and are reaching out to potential candidates directly, making the whole process much more streamlined. Recruiters have the resources to find the right candidate in a quicker time frame. Working with a recruiting firm eliminates many of the steps a company has to go through to hire as they are the ones handling all aspects of sourcing, vetting, conducting initial interviews, and placing. The simplicity is that you and your business do not have to do the work and research to find suitable candidates.

You could do all the work and bog down your HR department, but wouldn’t it be a better choice to hire experts and get highly qualified candidates hand-selected by your recruiter? Working with a recruiting firm can keep you from wasting precious time and resources on your essential job searches so you can focus on what you do best.
