According to Inc. Magazine, the reality of the job search process is that the low unemployment market can make people feel like it’s easy to find a new role. The reality is far different, but if job seekers can’t find a job right away, they may feel like they are doing something wrong or are somehow inadequate.
The issue is that when the job market is solid, more high-level candidates will feel secure enough to potentially leave their stable jobs for a better work environment. That means the competition is tough so it can take time to find the right role.
A recruiter can help many of these candidates keep their spirits up even in the face of rejection. Here’s how a good recruiter can help you keep a positive attitude even through the hills and valleys of a job search.
