Using a recruitment agency can be a daunting and unfamiliar process for jobseekers who haven’t been through the process before. At Talentpath, our aim is to nurture our candidates through this journey with meaningful engagement and open communication. So if you’re wondering how it all works, and what you can expect we've included a short guide on each step of the process and how you can get the most out of it!
It's crucial to us that we find a role that is a good fit for both you and the employer. When you reach out to Talentpath you can expect the following from our process:
Step one – The initial phone call:
If you've reached out to register with Talentpath, one of our consultants or Talent Partners will spend some time with you over the phone understanding your availability, location, salary/pay rate expectation and general experience. This conversation will help us determine how we can best support you in finding your next role.
Step two - Meeting:
Next, we arrange a time for a face-to-face meeting (either over Teams or in our office). This step allows us (and you!) to put a face to a name. This gives you the opportunity to talk us through your employment journey in more depth. In this meeting, it's important for us to understand what matters most to you in the workplace and what kind of roles you’re on the hunt for.
Step three - Follow up:
In the following weeks after our face-to-face, we will contact you to check in and see how you’re getting on with your job search. This is part of our commitment to making sure we deliver the best service to candidates and that we’re both aware any changes that may have occurred since our meeting.
What you can do
If you want to make the most out of this process, here's some very simple and actionable tasks you can do to:
Ensure your resume is current - By submitting the most up-to-date version of your resume, this will give the consultant the most current information about your employment history, which will minimise any confusion and back and forth between you and the employer. Including the dates worked in each role is helpful for your consultant as they can begin to understand your tenure, especially if you've been a role for a long time!
Include your contact information! - This might sound a bit obvious but it's not uncommon to notice these details have been omitted! Is your mobile phone number correct? Is your email address current (and appropriate!)?
Save your consultant's phone number - If you've applied for a temporary opportunity, these can come up very last minute. Saving your consultant's number avoids you missing an opportunity because you didn't answer a call from that number you didn't recognise! Having their number handy also allows you to update them on any changes that may occur in your life.
What we can do
We are in it for the long game, so we are committed to providing outstanding service to our candidates. You can expect us to:
Check in: We maintain regular contact with you while you are actively seeking employment. Aside from calling you if an opportunity comes up, we will call you just to check in!
Use our networks: If we think your skills could be applied to another division within Talentpath, we will pass your details on to our colleagues and let them know about your experience and how you may suit their active or future roles.
Actively search for roles: In the event that an opportunity hasn't come up in the weeks following your initial meeting, we can float your details to new and existing businesses and clients.
We hope the above guide is useful for understanding how the recruitment process works, because our ultimate goal is to help support you in your journey to finding your dream role.
