When you are job seeking you will normally come into contact with a recruiter rather than the employer themselves. These can be in-house recruiters or human resources staff who are responsible for recruitment, but the majority of job adverts are posted by recruitment agencies. Whilst recruitment agencies work contractually for the companies for which they recruit staff, many agency recruiters have realised that it is more beneficial to work with candidates and treat them like people rather than a commodity or product that they are selling to their clients. One such agency will be our guests on the latest #JobAdviceSA chat.
Liyema Consulting (@liyemaConsultn) were founded in 2012 as a two person, human resource consulting company, and have grown to be a formidable force in the industry, boasting a number of local and international clients. At their foundation is the belief in the cyclical effect of growing businesses and changing lives. Their business is people and their solutions are people centered.
They value their candidates and take every opportunity to help them gain knowledge and experience. Their people are their company’s greatest asset and they pride themselves on their culture of learning, growth and inspiration. They provide quality service with the utmost integrity, reliability and honesty in all spheres of their business.
This is why they are the perfect company to tell us how jobseekers can work with recruiters to improve their chances of getting a job. Here are the questions they will be answering:
Q1. Why should people build a relationship with recruiters when they are looking for a job?
Q2. What do recruiters want to see on your CV?
Q3. What should you include in the email when you send your CV to a recruiter?
Q4. When should you expect to hear from a recruiter after you’ve sent them your CV?
You can answer any of the questions using A1, A2, A3, etc, or ask any other questions you might have using the hashtag #JobAdviceSA
Looking forward to chatting with you!
