How to Leverage Marketing Recruiters for Better Careers
Marketing Recruiters 101
If you've never worked with marketing recruiters before, our role and purpose might not be clear. Even experienced professionals with decades in marketing or any other field may not really understand what we do.
Recruiters work with employers to find qualified candidates to fill work needs. When an employer needs to hire, they can contact a recruiter with the job details and ask them to find someone who can do the work. The recruiter direct sources qualified candidates through networking and within their own talent pipelines, then asks them if they're interested in working for the client. The recruiter presents these candidates to the client and they work together to decide who would be best for the job.
Employers choose to work with marketing recruitment agencies for a variety of reasons, but mostly to get help with hard-to-fill or mission-critical roles. Sometimes they don't have the in-house human resources to efficiently do the hiring themselves. Other times they want to leverage the deep pools of talent and relationships that recruiters develop to ensure they get the best possible talent.

The Qualities of the Top Marketing Recruiters
There are many recruiting agencies out there of all types and sizes. If you work with the right marketing recruiter, you can open doors to great job opportunities at amazing companies. But it can be difficult to identify which have your interests at heart and can offer you the best-fitting positions.
One of our candidates became the 39 year old CMO of a Fortune 500 company thanks to help from marketing recruiters. Here are the two qualities she looked for when deciding who to work with:
- A specialization in marketing. Though many recruiters attempt to place talent in marketing roles, very few actually have a dedicated focus on marketing jobs and candidates. You want to work with someone who has experience in the marketing industry, who understands your work and speaks your language. Only specialized marketing recruiters can thoroughly understand a client's marketing needs and know when you're a good fit.
- Retainer-based searches. The best kind of marketing recruiter for your interests is one that can take the time to ensure you're a good fit and only gets paid when a successful hiring process is completed. When you work with a retained search agency, you can be confident that the client has a vested interest in finding a good fit for the job. You won't be rushed through the hiring process just so an agency can collect their contingency fee before someone else gets to it first.
