Why Work With A Professional Recruiter?

Why work with a Global Management Search Consultant?

We consider ourselves recruiters that are highly consultative, thus the designation “Search Consultant.” The following will help you understand why working with a Global Management Search Consultant will help your career development and how to make the most of this relationship.

Resume walked to the front of the line.

When you apply to a position directly, your resume frequently lands in a pile that is often screened by HR or an administrative assistant. What are the odds that the hiring authority will see your resume?  Global Management Search Consultants develop deep relationships and reputations with companies, their HR departments and hiring managers. They have the ability to get your resume in the hands of a decision maker. In most cases, our Search Consultants already have an established relationship with the hiring manager who personally reviews your resume along with an overview of why you are being presented. You are walked right to the front of the line!

Confidentiality.

Global Management Search Consultants work with you in a confidential manner. Sending your resume out into the Internet is like posting a sign in front of your manager’s office door telling him/her that you are looking for another job. In addition, sending your resume blindly to a company is risky. How do you know who will see the resume and what they will do with it? Our Search Consultants will always tell you what they are doing with your resume, why they are doing it, and where they are presenting it. They will also request that your name and information is kept confidential; maintaining confidentiality is at the core of what we do.

Effectiveness and Efficiency.

Proceeding through an interview process with a potential employer is a formal process that may not afford you the opportunity to ask tough questions and clear concerns to determine if the opportunity is right for you. How many interviews and conversations will it take you to get to the point where you really know if the opportunity is right for you?

What to look for and what to avoid when choosing a Search Consultant:

Choose a Search Consultant (Recruiter) who:

  • Specializes in your specific field.
  • Has a successful track record with the level and type of position you want.
  • Has a stellar reputation.
  • Has a proven process and can articulate what they can and can not do for you.

Avoid a Search Consultant (Recruiter) who:

  • Releases your resume or other personal information without permission
  • Shows unethical behavior
  • Posts fake Job Postings to induce you into communication
  • Demonstrates “Transactional” behavior
  • Maintain a good working relationship with your Search Consultant by:
  • Keeping him or her informed if some material has changed since you last spoke.
  • Being direct about concerns as you proceed through an interview process.
  • Disclosing your own job search efforts and working with other recruiters.
  • Determining up front the preferred frequency & method for each to maintain periodic contact.
  • Keeping commitments.
  • Allowing him/her to be consultative and offer professional advice.
