This is the final part of our “Benchmark Search Hiring Forecast” series, studying the essential place of a recruiter network in your career.
Who is a recruiter to you?
Recruitment, contrary to popular belief, is not a transaction: it’s a network, and to take full advantage of your recruiter network takes planning, strategy, and patience.
Business owners and hiring managers rely on the recruiters' skills and passion for people to highlight the best talent for their company. Candidates look to recruiters to assess their career and background and channel their energies to finding them a better job and advance their career.
Recruiters are matchmakers: they build relationships, above all else, and relationships are cultivated over time.
Network building in 2021
Placing your business health or career in the hands of a stranger is a terrifying prospect, and recruiters make no small effort to make sure they give you everything you need to trust them to make the right decision for you.
At Benchmark Search, we are experts at recruiting with integrity. We make sure every candidate and client who passes through our doors (digitally or in-person) is treated with complete respect and candor, and we support them throughout the process, even when they’re unsure of how we work or what we do.
Whether you’re looking to your recruiting partners now, or in 6 months, or in a year - does the length of time you’ve known your recruiter make a difference to your job search or talent sourcing?
The answer, unequivocally, is yes.
