What is an employment consultant?
Employment consultants guide you through the job hunting process. If you already have a dream job in mind, they will make sure that you are prepared as well as possible for every stage of the job application process. This includes helping you to optimise your LinkedIn profile, tailor your CV to a particular vacancy, write attention-grabbing cover letters, and coaching you on how to approach the interview and how to answer the most common interview questions.
And if you are not sure what you want to do next in your career? Then an employment consultant can help you figure this out.
What are the advantages of hiring an employment consultant?
1 – Your application is more likely to attract the attention of the recruiter or hiring manager
Our employment consultants know how to capture the interest of a recruiter or hiring manager. They will make sure that your CV and cover letter are not only grammatically correct, free of spelling errors, and submitted in the correct format, but they will also help you add those extra elements that allow you to stand out from the other candidates.
2 – You feel more confident going into the interview process
It’s natural to feel nervous going into a job interview. But it certainly isn’t necessary. With attentive coaching from our employment consultants, you can develop the skills and confidence you need to go into your job interviews feeling relaxed and comfortable. And if you’re feeling confident and relaxed, you’re way more likely to make a good impression on the interviewer and to ace your interviews.
3 – You are more likely to negotiate a good deal once you receive a job offer
Our employment consultants can help you establish the market-related salary range for the positions you’re being interviewed for. Market-related salary information is often difficult to obtain, yet many employers still ask you how much you expect to earn, instead of telling you what they are willing to offer. This can easily put you at a disadvantage in a salary negotiation if you don’t know how much other people earn in similar roles.
When you work with a skilled and experienced employment consultant, they will be able to guide you on how to answer the question “What are your salary expectations?” for each position that you apply for.
