7 Reasons why working with a headhunter

When looking for a job, you need all the help you can get. Having an inside track can help you navigate through a tough job market, especially when nobody or hundreds of (not qualified) people applying for the same position.

We from meetus@US as a headhunter or a career counselor can provide you with an advantage in a competitive job market. As a professional we help you to improve the way you present yourself to potential employers, and assist you in finding positions not advertised online or on other channels.

Determining whether to work with a headhunter or a career counselor depends upon your specific situation. If you have just started looking for a new position, networking with headhunters may help you find the perfect job. If you have searched for a job for some time, and are currently unemployed or working in a job you hate, it may be time to consider hiring a career counselor.


Headhunters, also called recruiters, find quality talents to fill job openings specifically for companies. Headhunter receives a commission negotiated with the company when the position is filled with a qualified candidates. Headhunters also help applicants tweak their resumes and help them prepare for an interview.

Benefits of Using Headhunters

Some of benefits of using a headhunter as part of your job search include:

If you work with a qualified headhunter, you’ll likely spend less time applying for average jobs. Without a headhunter, you may spend time posting your resume online, and applying for every job that seems like a good fit. Headhunters help you target your search and they use their contacts to find jobs that fit your unique experiences and qualifications, and that often pay higher salaries.

Headhunters frequently represent companies in specific industries which often offer higher-paying jobs, or companies that have searched for months for qualified candidates. Additionally, a headhunter can also negotiate your salary on your behalf. Companies often pay headhunters based on a percentage of the first year’s salary for new employees. Because of this, it is in the best interests of the headhunters to get you the best possible salary, so they can receive higher commissions. You can cast a wider net when you work with a headhunter. Recruiters have access to unpublished job openings, and they also exchange information with other headhunters. Headhunters have a deep knowledge of the positions they try to fill and the company culture. They can assess your skills and determine if you might be a good fit for a career that you may not have considered previously.

If you need to keep your job search a secret, you may not want to post your resume online, or respond to confidential job postings. A headhunter provides a level of confidentiality to your job search, and uses discretion when working with clients. When you apply for a job with a company, you might find that the company recruiter is reluctant to reveal salary information or details about the qualifications for the position. You can have an open discussion with a headhunter about how much a job pays, and whether you could do the job.

Tips and Strategies for Working with Headhunters

Be upfront and honest about your skills and qualifications. If you have the right qualifications and the necessary years of experience, a headhunter can help you make a connection with employers that need your talents and skills. The recruiter uses your resume and cover letter to determine whether you are a potential match for any open positions. However, the headhunter may decide not to represent you, if you do not qualify for any open positions.

Here are 7 reasons why:

1. There’s A Lot To Be Gained

Your time is worth a lot and you don’t want to waste it for the wrong job openings

2. They Know How Green The Grass Is

You may not think you’re interested in leaving your current job but we as a recruiter often work to fill positions that aren’t entirely public yet.

3. The Future Isn’t Now

Even if none of the jobs we offer to you are what you want, remember,  this phone call is not wasted time.

4. Companies Change

Situations have a habit of changing. Companies go through restructuring, and positions get overhauled.

5. You Change Too

What you enjoy and find challenging will also evolve over time. And sometimes, in order to find the roles that can help you meet those challenges, you need to move organizations.

6. A Chance Market Research

Recruiters work in your field all the time, and they tend to know the average value of your position. A conversation with a headhunter is a  great way to do some of your own market research.

7. Lending A Helping Hand

Just because the job isn’t something you’re interested in, you may very well know someone who is.
