As you know, at ITtechExec, we've built our services so that we are more than a resume-only design firm that just sends you on your way. We help our candidates launch their searches. And whether you like recruiters or not, they can play a vital role in the job search process.
Nevertheless, not all recruiters are worth engaging. You need to know where to spend your time.As a result, we've built in a recruiter engagement solution as part of our preparation and protection approach.
Building a strong recruiter network, with the right recruiters, can add another layer of protection.
For each client we serve, as a value-add, we offer to reach out across our network of top-quality executive recruiters, sending an anonymous Candidate Profile (a snippet of your IT or technical resume; see samples below). We will even include this profile on our blog and use it as part of our social media engagement.
When recruiters like what they see, we then contact you to make an introduction to that recruiter. You and the recruiter take it from there. No wasted effort on your part.
Our Candidate Profiles are sent as snippets of your technical resume to recruiters as a way of giving them just the highlights of each candidate. It's a basic "elevator pitch" if you will that is meant to get their attention to ask for more. Here are some examples:
Once a recruiter expresses interest, we then forward (with your permission) the complete resume.
We can even take it a step further and build out a complete recruiter/employer matching campaign as an additional service.
As you may know, the recruiting industry has ballooned over the past 5 years, but it is both time consuming and frustrating for job seekers to figure out the best recruiters for them to engage (geographic location no longer has much to do with it; most technical recruiters fill positions out of their state/country). Therefore, recruiter matching is becoming a useful resource. The same is true for employer matching.That is why ITtechExec has partnered with a research firm to offer this solution to our clients. It's all part of preparing and protecting our clients.
