The decision to make a career move can be stressful. With dozens of apps sending push notifications, your inbox full of emails with jobs found “just for you,” and tricky company websites to navigate, there are plenty of reasons why determining the right next step may seem nearly impossible.
Baker Tilly Search & Staffing recently asked our online visitors how they found their most recent career opportunity. While there were many who indicated that use of social media outlets, job boards and company websites, more than 17 percent of those who answered said they found their most recent career opportunity with the assistance of a recruiter.
Those of us who work in recruiting often hear from friends, family, acquaintances and new candidates that they didn’t know recruiters could be a resource for them. As our poll suggests, job seekers place a great deal of emphasis on job boards and social media resources to find their perfect fit.

Next time you’re considering a career move, or if you’re still looking for that perfect position, don’t forget about the benefits of working with professional recruiters. Recruiters at Baker Tilly Search & Staffing know how to work with candidates and organizations to create professional relationships that work for everyone involved.
