Are you currently seeking a new job but don’t know where to start? A good idea is to prepare a list of Australian recruiters who specialise in your area of expertise and begin to develop relationships with individual recruiters. A common mistake job seekers make is signing up to every agency in town and expecting to sit back and wait for the interviews to start rolling in. Unfortunately, this is not how things work. Before you waste the recruiter’s time, (and more importantly your time), spend a few hours researching the recruitment company and what they can do for you. If your objective is to secure a new job in a large firm there is no point in meeting with recruiters who can only work with smaller boutique companies. Alternatively if you wish to work at a smaller company you need to focus your search on a finding an Australian recruiter who can help you in this area.
Can An Australian Recruiter really help me find a job in the Australian job market?
The simple answer is yes! Australian recruiters have an in depth knowledge of the Australian job market and often have key contacts within organisations. What’s more, they also have knowledge of current market salary expectations and often intimate knowledge of what certain employers are looking for in the “ideal” candidate. However, don’t forget that a recruitment agent relies upon placing candidates in jobs to receive their commission. There can often be a conflict between what is best for the job seeker and what is best for the recruiter.
Develop a relationship with your recruiters:
As per any relationship, building a close connection is a two way process. If you think that sending your resume to a recruiter is enough to get you noticed you are wrong. Recruiters can receive hundreds of resumes on a daily basis. In most cases recruiters have many different jobs on the go at one time and don’t have time to read through every resume with a fine-tooth comb. Although you may be a fantastic job candidate with experience, skills and qualifications it means nothing if the right person is not reading your resume.
A professional candidate needs a professional resume:
Reports indicate that a recruiter will spend less than 30 seconds first reading through your resume. With this very limited amount of time you need to ensure that your professional resume is error free, modern, formatted correctly and most importantly highlights your skills and achievements. First impressions are key to job seeking and the first impression a recruiter will make about a job candidate is through their resume.
