Recruiters know about jobs that are not posted on job boards. These might be jobs where the search is confidential or just not posted. Some companies simply choose to only use external recruiters to avoid a lot of the work. Job board postings can provide a lot of non-qualified candidates’ resumes, each of which needs to be reviewed regardless. Recruiters are a cost-effective way for companies to reduce some of this workload.
Most recruiters have long-term relationships with their clients and have earned trust over time. This means two things to the job seekers.
1.) When the recruiter presents someone, the company listens. If you approach the company on your own, you are a complete unknown. Just like contracting a painter or hiring someone to fix your car, a good reference goes a long way.
2.) The recruiter can explain what makes you a good fit and help you showcase your fit. Because the recruiter understands the corporate culture aspects that are hard for you to find in your research, they can tell employers how you fit. They can also help you understand the backgrounds of interviewers and what to wear to the interview.
