If you’re looking to incorporate recruitment services as part of your job search, you’re probably wondering how much it costs. If you are using any reputable recruiting service, you should not be paying any fees to the recruiting company or the recruiter. Recruiters are working for, and therefore receiving payment from, companies looking to hire new employees.
How recruiters get paid
Luckily, payment to recruiters should never come out of your own pocket. Financially, nothing from a candidate will go to their recruiter. When working with a recruiter, if employment is obtained, none of the starting salary or hourly wage will be paid to the recruiter. Clients secure new, qualified employees by paying recruiters to find the right person to fill their positions. Clients then pay the recruiters either per employee or on a contractual basis. Recruiters are tasked with finding and placing great talent, and that’s what they’re paid for.
How this benefits the candidate
It’s a mutually beneficial relationship between yourself and a recruiter. As a job seeker, you are looking for employment with a company aligning to your own values, skills and needs. A recruiter is working for different clients to find and place the best workers. Since the clients are paying the recruiters and not you, you have no monetary stake in using a recruiter, but they have incentive to find you employment.
How this benefits the client
Clients know working with a recruiter will yield talented workers efficiently. Recruiters are able to build a good bench of job seekers who are ready for work at most given times. These are services clients are willing to pay for. The client will be matched with a capable new employee, with less time, money and effort exerted on their part.
How to begin using recruiting services
