There has never been a better time to stack the odds of premium employment opportunities in your favor. Gone are the days of hotel recruiters and casino recruiters offering jobs at sub-par wages.
Today’s employers know they have to offer top-level compensation and benefits packages if they hope to stand a chance of recruiting quality candidates. In a fiercely competitive talent marketplace, it is the employer willing to compensate their team members fairly who will attract the best candidates.
Instead of waiting for a hotel executive search firm or hospitality recruiter to reach out to you on LinkedIn, you are much better off submitting your resume in advance.
Following are just a few reasons why this is the case:
- The old adage ‘the early bird catches the worm’ is true in search and recruiting. A firm like ours is much likelier to recommend on-file candidates over new job applicants. If your skills match the needs of our clients, the chances of an introduction are high.
- Keeping your resume on file with us gives you leverage with your current employer. You will be well aware of hiring trends thanks to the introductions we contact you about. Knowing you are an in-demand employee does wonders for your self-confidence.
- Being contacted by a recruiting firm exposes you to opportunities outside of your current industry. Hospitality training is transferable to numerous industries. You might be contacted regarding a phenomenal opportunity in an industry you had never previously considered, i.e. resort management, Native American casino management. Once your eyes are opened to the cornucopia of career paths at your disposal, you will look at your current job in an entirely new light.
These are just a few of the ways that submitting your resume early is beneficial. If you would like to be kept in the loop on intriguing opportunities relevant to your skills. There is no fee to register with our talent database. Read more here.
