“Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life” – we’ve all heard the cliché. However, while work will always be work and not play, if you’re genuinely doing something you love then you’re always going to feel like you’ve won on the job front. A satisfying and challenging role in an industry that you’re engaged with will give you an edge in terms of quality of life. So, how do you achieve it?
Work with a recruiter to make the most of your resources
Finding your dream job can seem like an enormous mountain to climb but having a recruiter on your side is like travelling along with a guide. If you opt to carry out your job search via a recruitment agency then you’ll have the benefit of:
The right agency will have in-depth insights into your industry, as well as the individual roles you’re interested in.
Recruiters dedicate their days to helping people find that dream job. If you don’t have the time to do the research or keep an eye out for the most recent positions available then you’ll get much better results with a recruiter on your side. Trawling through job sites or signing up for endless mail shots can eat into your precious time and it makes much more sense to pass this effort over to a recruitment expert to handle.
From upgrading your CV to providing you with tips and helping you to prepare for your interview, working with a recruiter is like having a job search coach. Although no one can guarantee the outcome of a job search, you can improve your chances of success by working with a specialist agency.
You might be the very best person for your dream job but if you’re not aware of the opportunities that arise in your area then you won’t even be in the running. A recruiter will be first to know about the most exciting opportunities and able to ensure that you don’t miss out as a result of a lack of network.
What does the right recruitment agency look like?
This depends a lot on the job that you’re looking for and the industry that it’s in. It’s always useful to work with a recruitment agency with experience – and obvious success – in finding other candidates similar roles to the one that you’re looking for. Another key element in the right agency will be one that has strong relationships with employers in your chosen sector – and which is keen to build a long-term relationship with you. Make sure that you’ll get the support that you need from the agencies you’re considering, whether that’s interview preparation or seeking out niche opportunities.
