It has been our experience in working with candidates over the years that they tend to have similar questions in common when first working with a recruiter, so let us provide some up-front answers to those typical questions.
Why should I use a recruitment firm for my job search?
Candidates use recruiters for a variety of reasons.
The candidate may not be familiar with the key employers and contacts within a specific area of the country where they wish to relocate.
The candidate may not have the time it takes to conduct a thorough job search, especially if looking for a job in a major metro area where there may be hundreds of potential employers.
The candidate may want to hear about positions not currently being advertised.
The candidate may want a job search designed specifically to suit his/her career goals and job interests.
The candidate may not have been in the job market recently and may desire the assistance a recruiter can provide in helping him/her to develop a resume, prepare for an interview, interpret salary offers, provide cost of living comparisons etc.
The candidate may want a confidential search conducted in a local market therefore not wanting to mass mail his/her resume.
What does it cost to work with a recruiter?
NOTHING! At Management Recruiters of Morgantown our services are being compensated for by our client employers who have asked us to identify top talent for them.
Can I be satisfied that my search is handled confidentially?
At Management Recruiters of Morgantown, we only present a candidate's resume and credentials to a potential employer after introducing the opportunity first to the candidate. Upon obtaining the candidate's permission, our recruiter would then present them as an interested candidate for the position. Effective recruiters are not simply resume faxers and emailers.
How do I choose a recruiter?
Candidates should work with recruiters who specialize in their particular industry and profession. As recruiters are very niche oriented, a recruiter who frequently works in the candidate's specialty field can identify positions that are the most relevant and in the most timely manner.
Does it matter where my recruiter's office is located?
NOT REALLY. In this day and age of advanced communication technology with the Internet, interactive video conferencing, telephones, fax machines etc., specialty recruiters frequently cover large geographic territories. Choose your recruiter by specialty, not location.
Can I work with more than one recruiter at a time?
Of course a candidate may work with more than one recruiter, however, this practice may not produce optimal results. If you have found the right recruiter, one is all you need. You don't want to be embarrassed by being introduced to a potential key employer by two different recruiters. It makes it look like the candidate is not organized or perhaps even desperate and has his/her resume out everywhere. Also, a recruiter may not work as hard for a candidate who is just "shopping around" and not really committed to an organized search.
When will I hear from my recruiter?
The candidate and recruiter should agree up-front on a communication process as well as the frequency of communication. Some candidates only want to be contacted if an ideal opportunity is identified, while others may want to have a status update weekly. The frequency of contact by the recruiter will most likely vary based on the stage of the job search. Once a candidate is in an interview process with a company he/she will probably hear from the recruiter almost daily until the decision is made on that position.
