business shot 1Many may wonder why, some ponder how, others just shake their heads in confusion. But where there is a will there is a way, and it is not as folly as some may suppose to be job hunting in the current economic climate. IT in particular still seems to be a land of opportunity, admittedly it is not as lucrative as it once was, but if you have what an employer is after – you are in luck, and will be in demand.

When looking for new job opportunities now, you need to remember that it is a client’s market, no longer the candidates. You are looking to impress your future boss, show them why they want to take a chance on you, and hand over that fat paycheck. Everyone needs to get their hands dirty and get back in the S & M game – selling and marketing your greatest asset: Yourself. You need to know how to sell your strengths, minimise your weaknesses (without pretending they don’t exist) and begin an open and honest dialogue around what you can bring to the table. I’m not saying that clients don’t need to toe the line as well, they do. But they are the ones with the pocket aces at present.

Understanding how this beast works I think is the key to a more successful job hunt for all the candidates out there, and also for more effective and long-standing placements to be made by organisations. The better everyone understands the value proposition on hand, not surprisingly the greater the benefit that can be derived by all parties involved. And it seems that to many Recruitment is the Albino in the room, the oft noticed, but ill understood familial relative.

Recruitment seems to be one of those disciplines, not unlike large portions of IT, which those outside the industry have great difficulty understanding exactly what it is that we do. Trying to narrow it down into its most simplistic form; we try to add the greatest value to staffing processes. We do this through a range of means including but not limited to: understanding market conditions, company cultures, identifying human capital and being an open and hopefully easily understood communication conduit. We are mediators, interviewers, testers, marketers, salesmen (and women), vast wells of information and as an industry seem to have a taste for the finer things in life.

Sometimes like herding cats, other times like playing Chess, Recruitment is rarely dull and is one hell of a rollercoaster. I hope here to better explain what we do and how we can optimally work with people on both sides of the coin to ensure the best placements possible, with happy clients and candidates as a result. Check back in regularly to see what is happening in my world, and the wider world of Recruitment. Happy Job Hunting!
