How a Headhunter Could Help You Land Your Next Big Career Move

There are tons of job opportunities out there at the moment. Even better, competition to attract the best talent means companies are willing to offer generous pay, plus a number of rewarding benefits. As such, the power is truly in your hands, and there’s never been a better time to make your move…

With that in mind, you’d think that candidates would be jumping at the chance to speak to an experienced recruitment professional – but the truth is, some of the people we approach never respond to our calls or messages. That’s why we’re here to tell you why it’s important to keep your recruiter close.

What can a headhunter bring to your job search?

For starters, headhunters like ourselves have a strong network of businesses at our fingertips. They’re actively seeking top talent – so if we approach you, there’s a good chance it’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss. In some cases, the role we’re looking to discuss may not even be advertised on job listings.

Plus, if it turns out the position available isn’t the right fit for you, staying in touch with our team means we’ll be on hand to recommend even better roles that match your personal preferences and complement your career goals. Just tell us what you’re looking for, whether that’s a friendly team, flexible hours, or conditions of pay – we’ve got you covered.

“But what if I’m not looking for a role?” You ask! That may well be the case, but after speaking to an experienced recruiter, you might discover that you’re severely underpaid in your current position, or that there are much better benefits elsewhere.

Why ghosting your recruiter is bad for business

It’s important to bear in mind that in the professional sphere, everything you do is a reflection of your personal brand. Fail to turn up for an interview or ghost a recruiter, and you risk harming your reputation – especially in niche industries such as the emerging technology sector.

Next time you’re thinking of cutting contact with your headhunter, try putting yourself in their shoes. If you’d spent time and energy researching a company or preparing for a role and they suddenly stopped responding, you’d feel disrespected. Be completely honest with your recruiter, that way, ghosting won’t be necessary.
