As the well known song by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston goes; it takes two baby – and this is the case with recruitment as well as just a catchy song that you can’t help singing too, I bet you’re even humming along in your head to the words now?
Anyway, recruitment is assisting those seeking jobs to find a job, as well as those looking to hire staff, find the right staff for their vacancies. As Recruitment Consultants in Cambridge, we are the people in the middle and we have to meet the needs of both parties; sometimes this is easy, and sometimes not so much – but we do love it all the same.
However, as a job seeker you can make our job easier and this will be of benefit to you too.
We are trying to find you your next dream job, while we love seeing you get a new job and join in that excitement you feel when you’re accepted for an interview and offered the job you have been so desperate to get – it’s important that you are proactive in your job search too.
As I’m sure you can imagine, we have lots of amazing candidates on our books, and we speak to loads of fantastic hiring managers too. If you see a vacancy we are advertising and we haven’t contacted you for it, but you think you’d be the perfect fit, then give us a call and tell us – we can quickly tell you if there is a reason we didn’t put you forward, maybe because of essential criteria from the hiring manager, or you may have forgotten to tell us your experience in that area and actually now we know this we agree that this is the job role for you.
Of course you are welcome to sit back and relax instead of playing an active role in taking that next step on your career ladder, but by getting involved and being proactive you’ll find that the process is sped up and because we may have already of met you we can put you straight forward for a role before we invite others for interviews as we feel you fit the bill to perfection.
By taking an active role in your job search you are also showing us that you are efficient, organised, and proactive while showing initiative; and chances are these things you have stated as skills on your CV so it’s great for us to have ‘real-life’ confirmation of this.
As professional recruitment consultants in Cambridge, we are invested in helping you with your job search but the real truth of the matter is that It Takes Two; there are lots of people out there searching for their dream job – by being invested in your career future and by being a proactive job hunter chances are you’ll find that dream job much sooner than others who sit back and let us do the hard work alone.
