- 1. Become your own boss. As an independent recruiter, you are able to set your own working culture, working environment, and working rules. Recruiting as a freelancer gives you freedom to make the business choices and networks you choose to target for sourcing resumes.
- 2. Schedule your own hours. Working independently as a recruiter provides you the luxury to work on your own schedule. Though, the strict 9am-5pm is not usually one that an independent recruiter needs to set for hours, but timing does make a difference. It is all about timing when sourcing candidates to a pool of applicants in an employer’s inbox.
- 3. Increase your self-worth. Knowing the employer and their culture is important to find the correct applicant. Understanding the personality of a vast network of job seekers can make your job more valuable. The employer knows that you are not only vetting qualified applicants, but also through an additional personality fit process. Referring your network not only vouches that you know their personality. In turn a company is more likely value your thoughts on an individual’s strengths/weaknesses.
- 4. Money, money, money. Working as an independent recruiter has its monetary benefits when the recruiter knows how to source the best. Each referral is worth the continuous follow ups, validating resumes, and consistent communication between candidate and employers. One referral can keep you comfortable until you work for your next referral.
