How to reach hidden job market hiring managersSponsored Article

FREDERICKSBURG, VA --Recruiters often represent unadvertised jobs. But getting to the right recruiter is not always easy. The key to finding the right recruiter is to understand that recruiters don't find jobs for people -- they find people for jobs. In other words,unless you're paying a recruiter directly don't expect them to canvas the world to find you a job. Recruiters will only be interested in you if you're right for a job opportunity at one of their (paying) client companies.

The key is to get your resume into the hands of the right recruiters at the right time. You have to realize it's a numbers game. Therefore to play it well you need to get your resume to as many recruiters as you can, whose clients currently need people with your skills, in your field and in your geographic area.

You can search the internet and find various lists of executive recruiters. However, they're not always organized, complete or easy to find. And it might take you a great deal of time. Alternatively if you want to instantly get your resume in the hands of 1000's of specialized recruiters in your area, with current positions to fill, let a service like ResumeMailman do it for you.
