What is Reverse Recruiting?

Reverse recruiting is a relatively new employment method. Traditionally, it is when employers essentially recruit employees, rather than employees applying for jobs for companies, and is very common among certain business industries, such as the tech industry, since it is often a very competitive job market. For instance, according to Korn Ferry, a Los Angeles-based management consulting firm, by 2030 there is expected to be a global shortage of 85 million tech workers accounting for an 8.5 trillion dollar loss in annual revenue.

Well, great, you say. Nice to know employers are reaching out to candidates in the tech industry to an alarming degree, or were at least. But you ask, how does this help me? Employers aren’t reaching out to me. Well, that’s where Brad and I come in.

Top Prospect Careers Reverse Recruiting tosses out the traditional definition. Instead, and to make it as simple as possible, we conduct your job search for you. From start to finish, from strategy to salary negotiation, we have your back.

This is our signature career coaching experience, and we defined it as reverse recruitment. We’ll help you gain clarity around your career aspirations, abilities, and direction. Then we will develop tailored career documents to manage your job search for you. From application to negotiation, we help you get hired and paid better, faster.

Brad and I, along with a few of our competitors, have redefined this term. And at the cutting edge of this idea, we are here to help you with your job search. So, give us a minute to express the top five benefits of working with TPC in reverse recruiting.

The Top 5 Benefits of Reverse Recruiting, include:

1. Saves Hundreds of Hours on Your Job Search!

Since reverse recruiting uses a multichannel approach to landing a new job, such as networking on LinkedIn, applying for jobs on job board websites, such as LinkedIn and Indeed, and emailing and messaging recruiters directly, we save you hundreds of hours. Additionally, because we are customizing the applications, the resume, and the cover letters, it gives you space to excel at what you’re good at. Leave the tedious stuff to the pros.

2. Streamlines Your Job Search.

Why spend hundreds of hours searching for generic lower-paying jobs or jobs which you don’t have the skills and experience for, when you can focus on applying for jobs, which better suit your personality, skills, and experience? And if you are having a hard time demonstrating transferable skills, we can help optimize your applications for you, so that you are able to land more interviews.

If you leverage the latest reverse recruiting strategies and techniques that Top Prospect Career's uses, you are much more likely to find a job which matches your skills and experience. This also makes it much easier for recruiters and hiring managers to hire you if they actually understand, with vivid clarity, that you meet most of, if not all, the job qualifications.

3. Improves Salary Negotiation Skills for Job Seekers. When you hire a reverse recruiter or reverse recruiting services company, such as Top Prospect Careers, they teach you exactly how to negotiate a better-paying job or how to renegotiate a raise for your current job. This way you will not land up making a terrible mistake by taking a job for 30% less than you could have, if you just had a better salary negotiation strategy during your job search!

4. Saves You Money.

Woah hold on a second. How does paying for a premium job search service save me money? Great question. First, by reducing the length of your job search. Second, if you’re already working 40+ hours a week, with very little time to spare, how much time can you dedicate to a job search without sacrificing your current employment?

In addition, if you’re only half committed to either your search or your work, what amount of income are you sacrificing by not being fully engaged, or at least, having someone who is fully engaged for you?

5. Learn From the Best.
