If you’ve just started your search for new IT jobs, you’re probably a little confused about what IT staffing firms and technical recruiters you should work with. To some extent, you’ll wind up picking your IT recruiters and IT staffing agencies based on location. If you want to work in a certain area, you need to work with the IT recruiting companies that have clients there.
Beyond location, however, there are other reasons why IT staffing companies are good or bad to work with. Firstly, you want to know that the IT recruiting agencies you pick are reputable. You can do a quick search online, both on Google and LinkedIn. If you ask well-established IT recruiting firms directly, they will also be more than happy to provide you with references or links to their reviews online. Besides being vetted, you also want to know that the IT recruiters you’re working with are interested in creating a good relationship with you. A recruiter who wants to build a good relationship with you truly listens to (or better yet, asks for) your preferences for your next role. They also contact you somewhat regularly while you’re searching for jobs and might even ask to meet you in person. The best recruiters want to place you in a job you’re happy with, and they spend time getting to know you so they can do this.
