Benefits of using a construction recruiter when finding your next job

After submitting your resume online, where did it go? Who reviews them? Will you get an interview? Will you get a response at all? Whether you are applying to become a Project Manager or any type of Executive position, the application process is frustrating. You have no control in the application process. What if you could?
When working with a construction recruiter, you get the opportunity to take control of your future. Staffing companies increase your chances of finding a position in construction that best suits your wants, needs, and career goals.
Consider the benefits of working with a construction recruiter:
  1. Direct connection
  2. Finding the right position
  3. Looking out for your future
  4. Interview training and resume cleanup
  5. Knowledge of the job market

Direct Connection

Your recruiter has close relationships with construction hiring managers. Their connection puts your name on the top of the eligible candidates list. Construction recruiters act as your advocates to hiring managers, handing them your resume personally. This eliminates delays in the hiring process and connects you directly to the people-in-charge. You will stand out against competing candidates.

Finding the Right Position

Matching the candidate to the company or the company to the candidate is what recruiters do. Your recruiter looks out for your best interests because they know you. They consider your career goals and values when connecting you to potential employers. Relationships develop between you and your recruiter, and they understand what you are looking for.
Do you want a permanent position? Would you rather work on contract? Do you want to work with a company that offers unique employee benefits? All these details’ recruiters consider when finding you the right position with the right company.
“For construction professionals, there are many benefits to working with a recruiter.  One of those benefits is tapping into an extensive partnership network, and having a direct line to decision makers within hiring organizations.  With this, job seekers can avoid the red tape associated with applying through company web sites or random job boards. Recruiters will deliver your resume and additional credentials to hiring managers directly, eliminating wasted time and accelerating feedback and next steps.  A knowledgeable recruiter will advocate for their candidates and offer further details into their personal qualifications and motivators, not easily conveyed through just a resume.  Additionally, recruiters will negotiate on your behalf and help to craft an offer that is acceptable and provides the proper growth path.”
– John Martin, Division Manager at Resource Options Inc.

Looking Out for Your Future

Did you know that a recruiter continues to look for opportunities for you down the road? The more you share with your recruiter about your career goals, the more resources they offer. Building that relationship is very beneficial.
Hypothetically, your recruiter has found you a Project Management role, and you have gladly accepted the offer. The contract is almost up, and your recruiter is already looking for your next project. You reach out to the recruiter to discuss next steps. The recruiter identifies opportunities for the candidate and the next phase of the candidate’s career begins. Recruiters are looking for new opportunities to further candidates along in their construction careers. By them knowing your long-term goals, they keep you in mind in the future.

Interview Training and Resume Cleanup

Recruiters don’t just link candidates to companies. They stay with you through the entire process until you are officially hired. Recruiters know what hiring managers are looking for and know how to market you to them.
Project Management resumes look different than resumes for other industries. Employers are looking for a special project’s list to see what projects you have worked on. Project lists showcase your skills to potential employers. Need help creating a project list? Construction recruiters are well-versed on how to create them and can assist you.
Once you move onto the interview process, recruiters help you prepare. It is intimidating walking into interviews. Construction recruiters personally know the hiring managers you are interviewing with. They know what types of questions they ask and what they are looking for in an employee. Recruiters help make the interviewing process less stressful for you, increasing your chances of employment. Search jobs

Knowledge of the Job Market

Construction recruiters have valuable knowledge about the construction industry. They know the latest trends, newest regulations, and most in-demand jobs. Their expertise of the market can help candidates better understand what is currently happening in construction.
