YOU CAN EXPAND YOUR NETWORK
Right now, your current connections probably include former employers and co-workers, old college professors, family, and friends. Depending on how far you are into your career, your list of connections can either be extremely small or relatively large. But they probably aren’t as extensive as a job recruiter’s. Your recruiter can take advantage of their extensive list of connections to help you find a great job.

YOUR RECRUITER CAN ACT AS A PERSONAL CAREER COACH
Whether you aren’t sure where your next career step is or you’re having trouble finding a job that matches your interests, you can work with a recruiter to help figure out your career path. During your initial interview with them, you can review your past jobs, interests, likes and dislikes, and more. This will help them find a job that matches your interests and qualifications to help ensure your long-time satisfaction.
YOU CAN RECEIVE DETAILED FEEDBACK ON YOUR RESUME
It never hurts to have a second set of eyes on your resume. Your recruiter will act as a free resume consultant. They can point out any errors or problems with your resume before sending out. They can also help tweak any formatting or wording issues that a regular person would not have caught or considered.
RECRUITERS WANT TO HELP YOU
Your recruiters want to see you succeed. They are committed to helping you find the right opportunity, to propel you to the next step in your career. They will take the time to focus on you, to provide you with open communication, feedback and advice that will help you grow professionally.

Feeling a little nervous about your upcoming interview? Practice with your recruiter! Even just practicing beforehand can help ease your nerves. Your interviewer can also give you some extra tips and pointers after your pretend interview with them.
RECRUITERS TYPICALLY HAVE ACCESS TO HIDDEN JOB LEADS
Seasoned recruiters have dozens of industry contacts that they can connect you to. As a result, they can connect you to job opportunities you never would have heard of without them. Sometimes, they even receive a tip about a job before it is officially posted. This can give you extra time to prepare your resume and cover letter for this job.
