What does a recruiter actually do?
Recruiters support companies in finding suitable employees for their open positions. They oversee the operational recruiting process and provide advice to corporate clients. This does not mean, however, that personnel consultants are the lawyers of the companies - on the contrary! A good personnel consultancy also provides support in the other direction, i.e. personnel consultants are also of great benefit to job seekers. They accompany you on your way to a new professional challenge and help you to find your dream job.
5 reasons why you should turn to personnel consultants
We at Schulmeister are always happy to support you on your career path. But what exactly does the help of personnel consultants look like? How do we enrich your search for a new job?
1. Finding job opportunities: Recruiters often have access to positions that cannot be found on public job portals - for example, if the client wants a hidden recruitment. These hidden positions can be invaluable to job seekers, as they mean less competition and often offer better salaries and working conditions. Plus, four eyes see more than two. That's why our recruiters:in also help you by proactively exposing you to openly advertised positions that you might not have noticed yourself.
2. Writing an application: Recruiters know exactly what an appealing application looks like and how to make your documents stand out to potential employers. Therefore, we can help you with the structure and composition of your CV, advise you on an appropriate photo and show you which certificates are relevant for your desired job - and which are not. We can also advise you on the dos and don'ts of your social media profiles and how to make yourself attractive to recruiters.
3. Preparing for interviews: A job interview is a nerve-wracking situation for many job seekers. Recruiters can ease your nervousness by helping you prepare for the interview. They can help you prepare for the interview by going through typical questions and answers or by giving you valuable tips on how to best present yourself.
5. Tips & Tricks: Recruiters are not only there to help you when you are planning a job change. We also offer general career counseling sessions that give you an orientation and an assessment of your career opportunities. In our online magazine, we also regularly provide you with helpful hacks for your career - whether it's tips for salary negotiations or whether you should change jobs.
