Recruiter's Opinion

I'm a recruiter for the largest staffing and recruiting firm in the country. I'm seeing a lot of people on this thread who are extremely stressed out about finding work, and I think you guys need to start seriously considering working with recruiters to find jobs. NOT ALL RECRUITERS ARE EQUAL! I work for Aerotek, where we value your goals, skills, and interests and we find you a "perfect fit": the job that actually utilizes your experience and abilities. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you are looking for work in the Portland, OR metro area. I can be reached via this thread, and, if you're seriously interested, please let me know and I will share my email.

  • Thank you for sharing your point of view as a recruiter. I am really struggling finding s recruiter in my sector, procurement. I have had a bad experience with a recruiter but I know not everyone is equal. I really thank you for sharing you point of view.

  • I agree that recruiters are helpful, but I personally have found them to be of know value. I am over 40, a B'S in Chemistry, an NBA in Global Management and just under 20 years in the chemical manufacturing field before having my position eliminated several years back. Aerotek had me come in for a face-to-face interview with a recruiter. I was never called even after calling and/or emailing my interest in working. I've come to the conclusion that these face-to-face or face chats are to do nothing more than what corporate America has already done: discriminate against older, experienced and minority job seekers.

I am really struggling to find a new position in the procurement sector. I am open to relocation, from Chicago, but I feel like I am going about my search the wrong way. I have worked with a career coach and had both my resume and LinkedIn profile written by an expert. How do you go about getting responses for job applications and finding a good recruiter? I know about networking, but I still feel like I am missing the boat.

I was wondering if any of you ladies have any suggestions on work from home jobs? I really would like to not go back to my 9-5 job and be away from my little. I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. I would like to not have to pay to start and don't want to be selling scentsy, etc. TIA!
