We’ve Already Done the Legwork for You!
Dear Tech Pro,
Recruiters may seem like they are everywhere, but finding the ones who specifically place IT pros like you can take a lot of work.
So why not do yourself a favor? Save hours of research and frustration.
My name is Stephen Van Vreede, and I am a Technical Résumé Writer and Job Search Strategist. I’m also an IT Job Search Adviser for TechRepublic, CIO.com, and Dice, where I have been featured extensively, as well as a Co-author of the upcoming career/life development book UNCOMMON with business leader Brian Tracy (June 11, 2015).
When approaching recruiters, what is the #1 issue?
It’s not location (most recruiters are not local anymore). It’s not being referred by a friend.
The #1 issue is being properly matched with them. And it’s where all the time and frustration comes in because you don’t just want to start calling recruiters or emailing them; you want to take the time to make sure they are a good fit for you, your goals, and ESPECIALLY your salary expectations.
Otherwise, you could spend a lot of time jumping through hoops with recruiters only to find out this one or that one doesn’t even place candidates with your background (believe it or not, but they aren’t always upfront about this).
That is why after listening to my client members talk about their frustration in finding the right recruiters, and after hearing how much of their precious job search time they were squandering scouring LinkedIn to find a recruiter who places for the types of jobs they were looking for, I began putting together specialized directories for them, leveraging my large network of recruiters.
I am now publicly offering select versions of these directories, such as this one made up exclusively of 1350+ highly ranked IT technical recruiters, spanning states A-W.
The directory, which is updated bi-annually, provides:
- Physical mailing addresses
- Email addresses
- Phone numbers
- Fax numbers
All the information you need to research, reach out, and engage with recruiters who place technical candidates … in an instant!
- Available in Word .doc format.
- Backed by 30-Day Money Back Guarantee!
- Includes tips on how to use the list for maximum benefit.
So Do Yourself a Favor!
- “Thank you, thank you for giving me a resource that would have cost me hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours to find elsewhere!” Amy G., Project Engineer, NYC
Of course you can do it all on your own (think of the hours you could spend on LinkedIn just searching!).
But now you don’t have to for much less than the cost of a Premium LinkedIn subscription!
Now, do you really need 1350+ technical recruiter names to land your next role?
Of course not.
But you do need to contact more than the one or two down the street you usually contact.
Why? In today’s marketplace, recruiters are less likely to be local, often nonresponsive, and can be a mismatch for you. That’s why you need to make sure you:
- Broaden your search to outside of just your local market.
- Contact many, many more recruiters than you might otherwise.
- Make sure to contact only those that place for the technical role.
Now, you might be thinking: Maybe I shouldn’t contact recruiters at all then!
I understand. There is no doubt they can be a frustrating bunch. However, with social recruiting on the rise (and fast), especially at the executive level, I would advise you not to dismiss them altogether. They don’t have to be your only avenue, but they can be an important and useful part of your job search, especially if you know how to approach them and are properly matched with them.
- “When I told my co-workers that I paid for this directory, they all laughed at me. That is until they needed to find a technical recruiter to work with them and they didn’t really know how to begin. Now they aren’t laughing!” Ahmed S., IT Project Manager, San Francisco, CA
Don’t Sell Yourself Short.
