Why You Should Partner with a Third Party Recruiter

By: Shane Cotner

We’ve all heard the old adage of “cutting out the middle man.” If you’re looking for your next career opportunity or looking to fill an open position in your business, you might be tempted to follow that advice. But where to begin your search? The internet is filled with electronic job boards and websites claiming to have the best opportunities or highest quality candidates. In such an environment, it’s easy to become completely lost in the white noise—you’ll soon find yourself buried beneath your competition. To set yourself above the rest as you enter the job market or seek your next employee, consider using a third party recruiter for a cleaner, simpler hiring process.

Expert Knowledge

Third party recruiters know the market, and they know the market well. Their continued existence relies almost entirely on keeping a finger on the pulse of things. Experienced recruiters have extensive connections and know where and how to best connect candidates with current openings, even when it comes to the most obscure specialist or niche jobs. By using a third party recruiter, you can rely on their expertise in order to find your next position or fill your current opening.


As mentioned above, third party recruiters have already established networks that are just waiting to be tapped. They can use these connections to find qualified candidates, sometimes even before those candidates are actively searching out new employment opportunities. Top talent can be quickly linked with current openings, minus the worry of missing an application window or second-guessing if they are a good fit for a company. This gives both applicants and businesses a leg up on simply using a job board or posting on the internet.

Best and the Brightest

Let’s be honest—great talent will rarely be found trolling through internet job board postings. Truly ideal candidates want the best opportunities available to them, and they know that a third party recruiting firm can deliver those opportunities. Meanwhile, businesses understand that third party recruiters know the difference between a good candidate and a bad one. They know they’re getting the best options possible by utilizing a third party. Best of all, for both job seekers and employers, third party recruiters often have access to talent that corporate recruiters may not.

Finding your newest employee or next career opportunity can be a daunting undertaking. Using a third party recruiter can remove much of the stress and mystery from the process. Whether it’s through opening a trove of expert knowledge, utilizing a sprawling network, or accessing the best and brightest candidates or offers in your field, using a third party recruiter can make your next hiring process a breeze.
