R is for… Recruiters

So you may have heard of recruitment specialists, but never used one or are not really sure what they do. Most recruitment consultants offer the following (confidential) services:

  • Career Development Advice
  • advice on the State of the Job Market
  • CV and Application Checking
  • Interview Training and Preparation
  • Information about Vacancies
  • Salary Information
  • Contract Negotiation
  • Knowledge of appropriate Contacts
  • Business Plan Preparation 

A word of warning though. Not all recruiters are good – do you research – find an appropriate recruiter for you industry and the type of company you are applying for a job with. Your colleagues, HR department and/or University will usually be happy to make recommendations.
