Ever wondered why IT recruiters are useful in your search for IT jobs? Why not just do the search yourself instead of working with IT recruiting companies? There are few reasons you should cultivate a relationship with technical recruiters—some of which are not obvious.
Firstly, IT recruiting companies have access to far more job openings than you do as the average job seeker. Not all job openings are posted publicly. Sometimes hiring managers have IT staffing companies working on a job that you may not even know exists. Working with them means you will know about them and be able to apply.
Secondly, IT recruiting agencies have strong relationships with the companies they’re working for. This means they can recommend you (as somebody whose expertise the hiring managers trust), make sure your resume doesn’t get lost in a stack of resumes, and even fight for you to get the salary or pay rate you want. All these benefits are hard to put a price on, but they’re very important in a competitive job market.
