Why are many external (a.k.a. "agency") recruiters
not all that helpful to new grads? The answer is simple:
unless they specialize in placing new grads, their clients
rarely ask them to search for a new grad to fill an open
Their clients typically ask them to find someone with at
least three to five years experience with some very specific
skills learned on-the-job. After all, most companies do not
employ recruiters for the jobs they can easily fill themselves.
Most companies have connections to universities and alumni
for tapping into the college candidate pool.
Should a New Grad Bother to Contact a
If you have a connection to a recruiter through family, a
friend, or a colleague, you should leverage it.
• Inside Information
Recruiters have insider information and market observations
on who is hiring in your geographic area and how much demand
there is for your skill set. They may even be able to set up an
informal meeting between you and one of their clients. This
may not be an interview, but meetings like these can lead to
interviews and/or more insights on who is hiring. As you ve
heard, it s all about networking.
• Free Coaching
Recruiters also act as informal job search coaches. A few
months ago, I got a call from someone in my congregation.
She had a son who was graduating soon and wanted to know
if I could help him in any way. I received his resume and gave
him a call. As it turned out, he needed some help with presenting
his experiences in his resume. I was able to provide him with
ideas on where to network to find hiring managers. We also
talked about how to discuss past jobs (and school projects)
during interviews to have a stronger impact in addressing the
Obviously, the smaller group of recruiters who help place
new grads is the place to start, but most recruiters can be
helpful in those ways.
The Reality and the Future
New grads should also realise they are not being singled out.
Recruiters are emailed and called by many job seekers every
month. Many of these potential candidates are only to be con-
sidered for future jobs, not ones that the recruiter is presently
Building a strong relationship with one or two recruiters
may not help find your first job (directly), but may help with
your second. Keep the recruiter up to date on your professional
situation so that you might be considered for a job down the
road. Remember, just a few years experience puts you in a dif-
ferent category in their mind.
Just like more experienced candidates, make sure to pick a
recruiter who places people in your field. If you only have one
choice, then you might ask that recruiter if they have a colleague
who specializes in placing candidates in your field.
Like every job search, recruiters have their place. Since they
work for companies, not candidates, they are only going to
place you in unique situations. However, being networked to
them allows that to happen... at some point in your career.
Leverage them as best you can now knowing it is likely to be
a long-term investment.
