One of the biggest advantages to working with a recruiter is the ability to bypass the automated system and frequently gain exposure to unadvertised opportunities. Similarly your recruiter will have valuable insights about the companies you are applying to and will act as your personal advocate for the position.
Phone interviews are becoming increasingly popular in today’s job market. Often times this phone call is used by recruiters to get to know an applicant and determine if they are a right fit for the company before bringing them into the office. This is a great opportunity for you, the job seeker, to showcase your strengths and personality without having the added pressure of meeting your interviewer face to face.
