There are many facets to the field of accounting, yet sometimes individuals can be pigeon-holed before they really can explore the field. Often, one gets settled in a position, then personal and social obligations make it difficult to pursue another area. In addition, an accountant may find that he has reached the “top” at his current employer and needs a new challenge.
That’s where a recruitment company can be so beneficial as the right company can lead a client to a new more challenging position or into a new area of the field that the client may want to explore.
Here are questions to ask yourself when meeting with a recruiter.
Does the recruiter listen to your needs or simply talk about positions that you have no desire to pursue?
Does the recruiter call and ask permission before he sends your resume to another company?
Does the recruiter push you to interview for positions you are not interested in?
Is the recruiter genuinely interested in placing you with the best company available or does he seem to be pursuing his own commission?
The right recruiting firm can take you from a dead-end job to a new, exciting place in your career. If you feel like your career interests are not being met, find a new recruitment company.
