You see an IT job posting for a company that you’re very interested in working for – then you see the same position posted by various IT recruiting companies. Who do you submit your resume to and do you submit to mulitple IT recruiters. The answer might surprise you. Submit your resume to the technical recruiter at the IT recruiting firm that is most reputable and/or you have a relationship with. Here’s why:
1) Submitting directly to the client could go into an HR black hole. Remember that not HR are trained to recruit on IT jobs. Therefore, even if they receive your resume, they may not know whether your a fit for the position.
2) Once you submit your resume directly to the client, you’re “their property.” Therefore, if IT recruiters Boston try to submit you thereafter, the company could reject it (then never even contact you).
3) The IT staffing company may have a relationship with the direct hiring manager. Therefore, by working through the IT recruiting agency, your resume may not only go directly to the source, the IT recruiter may be able to pursuade the IT manager to speak or meet with you based on their relationship.
Therefore, working directly with IT recruiting agencies is your best chance of landing that next information technology opportunity.
