A new year is just around the corner, which means that it’s as good a time as any to shake things up with a change of scenery. But if you’re looking for a new legal job in Canada on your own, you might be looking for a while – that’s why it’s important for job seekers to work with a legal recruiter. A legal recruiter helps you by matching your work qualifications with what job suits you best, essentially playing the role of a kind of legal matchmaker.
Most job seekers normally have little (or no) clue how the hiring process works, but for you to be successful at finding a job using a recruitment firm, it is important to understand how the recruitment process works. You can visit The Heller Group Blog to learn more about the process, but here’s a quick rundown: when a headhunter is tasked with finding candidates for a job vacancy, they will go through their database of job seekers and find someone that would fit the job’s particular description. They then give that job seeker advice and interview tips and send them off to the interview. If all goes according to plan, the job seeker is gainfully employed in no time.
The company is happy because they’ve had oversight of the whole application process; the job seeker is happy, because they got a job that fits their talents; and the headhunter is happy because they’ve done their job facilitating a good business relationship. With that process in mind, let’s look at some of the advantages of using job hunters:
A headhunter helps you by providing the hiring company with your profile as the best fit for the vacancy. They’re able to offer you information on how that particular company acts in interviews, what questions they ask and what kind of demeanour is attractive to them.
Extensive reach of companies
A lot of hiring companies won’t even post their job vacancies, instead opting to go completely through back channels like headhunters, so without a headhunter you’re at a numbers disadvantage. Furthermore, a headhunter knows a lot of companies and is in a better position to pair you with the right fit.
Sieving of job applicants
Since job opportunities tend to attract many job seekers, it is important for the headhunter to be able to sieve out the applicants who are not set up for the job in question. This gives them a kind of macro understanding of the job landscape, meaning they can help you find the perfect job.
Finally, headhunters are there for you with useful tips on how to ace your interview, having seen numerous people go through numerous interviews. They know what’s current with interview etiquette as well as what’s current with CVs and will pass that knowledge on to you.
Headhunters thrive on making sure that you land a good job, so it only makes sense to get one working for you. If this New Year’s resolution was for a change of pace, look no further than a qualified headhunter, who can ensure that you shake things up the right way.
