Job Search Consultation.png

INSIDE RECRUITER was founded because many people have no idea how the recruiting process operates behind the scenes. Leveraging this insider knowledge could make or break a person’s chances at landing an interview or job offer.

Our goal for the Job Search Consultation service is to listen to client’s current tactics and provide effective strategies that will help them land interviews using what you know as a recruiting experienced professional.

The more clients we speak with, the more apparent it has become that, many people don’t have anyone to guide them to what the most effective practices are in today’s market.

Most clients use 1-2 job boards (typically Indeed.com) because it’s all they have known. Let’s help them understand all the other tools at their disposal. Depending on the client’s current experience level, job search practices, industry, and career goals their strategy may need adjusting.

Based on your experience, knowledge, and background in the industry do your best to provide them the insight to help them get them ahead.


Why is landing an interview so Difficult?

 
Although this stat is a wide average (some roles may get more or less depending on level/industry etc.), the idea here is that Job Boards are oversaturated with applicants since most people use the same ones. Using just 1-2 job boards to find work is like building a house with a screwdriver. You need to use all the tools at your disposal to gain an advantage over the odds.

This statistic is usually the most surprising for people. Out of the 250 applicants who apply to jobs, only 4-5 people get called in to interview.  You can increase your odds by searching the “hidden job market” for jobs the competition didn’t apply to yet, networking, and by applying strategic keyword strategy into your resume.

The early bird gets the worm!   Some candidates apply to jobs that are open for weeks and wonder why they haven’t heard back. Oftentimes, the employer is already deep in the recruiting process.    Week 1-2:  Job is posted applicants apply   Week 3-4:  Recruiter phone screens applicants   Week 5-6:  In-person Interviews   Week 7+:  Offer Letter Accepted/Declined   *Keep in mind that this is only an average; the role, industry, level, location and more can increase or decrease the number of days.

What is the hidden job market?

Many clients only use 1 job board to find work (usually indeed.com). They don’t know that they are limiting their opportunities. Tapping into the hidden job market will open more doors for them and there are different ways of helping them find this.
