Finding Recruiters that specialize in your niche
NEW YORK, NY — Building relationships with recruiters may expose you to career opportunities that you might not learn about otherwise. Most employers don’t advertise the positions they hire recruiters to help fill, which are typically a firm’s most senior and highest-paying. And search executives usually promote their services to employers, not job hunters.
Identifying and connecting with recruiters who specialize in your area of expertise can be very worthwhile — though candidates should remember that recruiters are paid by the employer, and will put that employer’s interests first. Such niche recruiters aren’t always easy to find, so job seekers might need to use creative tactics.
Here are some ways of identifying recruiters who specialize in your area of expertise: 1) Scan recruiter directories online or at the local library. 2) Search for recruiters on networking sites such as LinkedIn. 3) Search online messaging & discussion boards. 4) Read business press for recruiter quotes. 5) Check trade or industry groups for referrals. 5) Call top employers in your industry and ask Human-Resources for a recruiter referral.
