career-advacement-smarttalentCareer advancement is often a top goal for most people, but it can be a challenge. You need to take smart steps to advance your career, which includes networking to find great opportunities with companies that provide the possibility of promotion. Reaching out to employers and finding positions that can set you on a good career path can be a challenge, but you have options. One of the best of those options is to work with a recruiter.

Staffing professionals at SmartTalent can provide invaluable assistance with career advancement in a wide variety of different fields. To work with a staffing service to advance your career, you should:

  • Find the right recruiter. You want a recruiter who has experience placing people in full time, direct hire and temp-to-hire positions. Make sure your recruiter works within your industry and has solid connections with potential employers you are interested in working for. Finally, make sure you and your recruiter mesh well – you’ll be working closely with them to find your career, and it is best if you can get along in a very positive way.
  • Be honest with your recruiter about your goals. Share with your recruiter as many details as possible about what kind of position you want and where you hope your career will go. Only by providing complete information can your recruiter begin to look for positions that are the right fit where you will have the chance to excel.
  • Be open to new opportunities and take advantage of the recruiter’s expertise. While you should share your goals for your career, your recruiter may have some creative ideas you have not thought of about how you can achieve the career success you are looking for. Value the recruiter’s professional opinion and expertise so you will get the full benefit of working with a staffing professional.
