What is Reverse Recruiting?

Reverse recruiting is a relatively new employment method. For Top Prospect Careers, it means we manage your job search. But, traditionally, it is when employers 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.

You may be thinking, “Great, but how does this help me? Employers aren’t reaching out to me, and my job applications are going nowhere.” Consider all the countless hours you’ve spent applying for jobs, updating your resume, creating cover letters, and stressing over your LinkedIn profile. Now, imagine if someone else, who is also a job search expert, were doing it all for you.

Top Prospect Careers’ approach to reverse recruiting sets aside the conventional definition of the term. Instead, we simplify the process by conducting the job search on your behalf, from start to finish.

Our signature career coaching experience is designed to help you gain clarity on your career aspirations, abilities, and direction. We develop tailored career documents to manage your job search, ensuring you get hired and paid better, faster – from the application process all the way to final salary negotiation.

Brad and I, along with a few of our competitors, have redefined the concept of reverse recruiting. We are at the forefront of this innovative idea to help you with your job search. No that we have defined what is reverse recruiting. Let us take a moment to share the top five benefits of partnering with TPC in reverse recruiting.

The Top 5 Benefits of Reverse Recruitment, include:

1. Saves Hundreds of Hours on Your Job Search!

With our multichannel approach that includes networking on LinkedIn, applying for roles on job boards, and contacting recruiters, we save you hundreds of hours. We take care of the time-consuming tasks of customizing applications, resumes, and cover letters, giving you the space to focus on what you excel at. Leave the tedious work to us, the pros.

2. Streamlines Your Job Search.

Why spend hundreds of hours searching for low-quality jobs or jobs which you don’t have the skills and experience for, when you can focus on applying for jobs that better suit your personality, skills, and experience? One of the most common mistakes job seekers make is applying to roles they are not qualified for, or not presenting their candidacy in an effective way to demonstrate they are qualified.

Moreover, if you are having a hard time demonstrating your skills, we can optimize your applications for you, so you are able to land more interviews. Career transitions are hard as it is, but even harder when you do not have a solid strategy.

By leveraging the latest reverse recruiting strategies and techniques used by Top Prospect Careers, you are much more likely to find a job which matches your skills and experience. We ensure that recruiters and hiring managers understand, with vivid clarity, that you meet most of, if not all, the job qualifications.

3. Improves Salary Negotiation Skills for Job Seekers. At Top Prospect Careers, we not only help you secure a job that suits your skills and experience, but we also provide coaching on how to negotiate a better salary or renegotiate a raise for your current position.

We believe you deserve to be paid what you’re worth, and with our step-by-step strategies, you’ll learn the art of negotiation and have the confidence to ask for the salary and benefits you deserve. As expert career coaches, Brad and I will guide you through the salary negotiation process, helping you overcome any obstacles in your way.

Don’t settle for being undervalued. With our support, you’ll be equipped with the skills to negotiate like a pro and walk away with a better offer.

4. Saves You Money.

Now, you may be wondering, how does paying for a premium job search save me money? The answer is simple: by reducing the length of your job search, you can start earning money sooner.

If you’re currently working 40+ hours a week, you may not have the time to dedicate to a job search without sacrificing your current employment. By using a reverse recruiting service, you can free up your time and still have someone who is fully committed to your job search.

Moreover, if you’re only half-committed to either your job search or your work, you may be sacrificing income by not being fully engaged in either. With us, you can focus on your current job while leaving the job search to the experts.

5. Learn From the Best.
