"Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished?
Yes; work never begun."

Dice Report

(September 10, 2009)  Anyone who's looking for a job, it seems, has an opinion about recruiters. They're not responsive, some say, or they can make it more difficult to meet with the hiring manager. So when 39 percent of Dice users said in a recent survey that recruiters weren't a good use of their time, we were surprised but not shocked.

While 39 percent is certainly a large proportion, it means 61 percent see at least some of the value recruiters bring to a job search: Twenty eight percent said they got a job through a recruiter, 23 percent have gone to interviews set up by a recruiter, and 10 percent have gotten a contract position through one.

Recruiters are an often forgotten, often undervalued resource that should be a part of any job search. They provide insights that can't be gleaned from a job description, like details of a company's culture, the hiring manager's background, or the needs that resulted in a job's opening to begin with. Retained recruiters especially have close relationships with employers, which allows them to provide insights that candidates can use to their advantage.

In fact, recruiters can be valuable resources throughout a technology professional's career. Because they work with a range of companies and candidates, they command an exceptional view of which skills are in demand or waning, what certifications hold real value, and which industry areas are in a position to grow or under pressure in ways that may not be readily apparent. For professionals who move into the manager's chair, a trusted recruiter is an important part of any strategy to find and retain talent.

Recruiters build their careers on relationships. That means they can be a source of intelligence and information for professionals who recognize their value, and make the effort to stay in touch.
