If you are looking for a
job, you know what a painful task it can be. Writing a
resume, looking through newspaper classifieds, and the worst
part is the job interview.
But there is one way to
make this process just a little easier; a recruiter or head
hunter. For the most part these folks work on commission so
they really do want to get you a job. But they usually focus
primarily on the positions they have orders for. So you
won't be their top priority if you just call one up. But do
it anyway, especially if you are very good at your job. Call
a recruiter first and only them, let them know you are using
them exclusively. In this case you should not post your
resume anywhere else and don't apply to any jobs. Tell
the recruiter what companies you are interested in and what
type positions you are looking for. And if you get a good
recruiter, they will do much of the work for you and call
you when they have interviews scheduled.
How to select a recruiter...
Call a few in your area and
tell them what you are looking for. If they seem willing to
help, ask for references. Then just choose the one that
seems the most capable of getting you a new job.
