As an IT recruiter, you may already have a great job and be pleased with your technical staffing company. The problem is that you never what your future holds. So what should you do even though you are already employed? Here are a few tips to either secure your position or give you an exit strategy.
You should always keep tabs on how the market is doing in the IT recruiting industry throughout your career. Over time your technical recruiting position may demand more money. You may simply have more responsibilities for the same technical recruiting job as someone else who is compensated more.
Keeping tabs on the IT staffing industry will also help you figure out how your IT recruiting company may be doing in the IT staffing industry. You need to have your finger on the pulse and know when your IT recruiting position is at risk. It is better to know early on so that you have ample time to start your new job search. Just because you have a stable technical recruiting does not mean it will always be that way.
Therefore, enjoy your recruiting position but always make sure to have a backup plan in case things go south. There are always opportunities in the IT staffing industry. You just need to know how to find them.
