Finding a Recruiter Worth Your Trust

Finding a Recruiter Worth Your Trust

Jeff Gipson Jeff Gipson | February 26, 2020

When we sit down and think about the chances we never took, why did we never take them? What was stopping us from stepping forward, trying to do something more, something different with our lives? The simple answer few folks want to admit is that we were, like every single person on this planet at one time or another, afraid.

Fear is a natural response to risk. It’s understandable if a candidate has a stable life, stable job, a family, a dog that eats one cup in the morning and one cup in the evening, that they would have doubts about disturbing the routine and the dynamic they’ve built. They don’t do more because risk could take away what they already enjoy. They could feel alone. They might feel stuck, unable to move even though they’re not doing what they love, what they feel passionate about or what will bring them true contentment.

As recruiters, we have the ability, the network and most importantly the chance to let every talented person out there, not living up to their full potential, know that they are not alone. We are in their corner, on the phone, at the end of every line of communication possible. 

These talented people have a partner and an advocate ready, willing and equipped to guide them through a foggy and uncertain future. Stepping out the door can be a tough decision, but when you open it and someone is already waiting for you to make that move, a recruiter who has taken the time and put in the effort to know you fully, you would be more likely to step out, confident in that person who has proven they are worth your trust.

As recruiters, we have to shape and change our candidate’s lives for the better. It is our purpose to find that point on the horizon, that place they never thought about going to and take them there.

“Knowledge is power” is an old cliche but an accurate one. We have the tools, the technology, and the relationships for directing our candidates in a way that positively impacts their lives. 

Every industry, every candidate, every client should come away from a recruitment experience in a better place. We are the difference between what might have been and what can transform today.


At The James Allen Companies, we want you to know all that you have to offer and how incredible your life could be. Time is something we can’t buy more of—don’t waste yours, and start a conversation with us today
