How to Best Use a Restaurant Recruiter for Your Benefit

Searching for a new job can be intimidating. There are several reasons you would do well to have a professional recruiter act on your behalf.

The Best Job Opportunities Aren’t in the Classifieds:
Management recruiters have access to a job pool not available to the public at large.. They can help you find the best positions. These openings are not generally advertised in the classifieds as many companies, for a variety of reasons, don‘t want everyone to know they are searching.

You Get Free Professional Guidance:

A recruiter’s fee is paid by the client company. They work on your behalf for free. You pay them absolutely nothing. What do you have to lose? Nothing!

Show Me the Money:

Restaurant executive recruiters earn a percentage of a candidate’s first year salary paid by the hiring restaurant. This gives your recruiter incentive to negotiate aggressively on your behalf.

Third Party Credibility:

People rely on experts to handle a variety of their affairs. Management recruiters personally market you to hiring managers, giving you third party credibility, a distinct advantage over the thick stack of resumes collecting dust on a hiring manager’s desk. You gladly pay fees for numerous services which enhance and simplify your life; why not let a professional recruiter manage your career…for free!


Posting your resume on job boards can be bad news for restaurant manager candidates as their current employer can find them as easily as anyone else. For a restaurant recruiter, confidentiality is their lifeblood. They understand and respect your need for confidentiality during a job search and ensure a discreet process from start to finish.

A Positive Financial Sign:

If a restaurant can afford to pay your management recruiter the fee to hire you, chances are good that concept is on solid financial ground. Companies in economic distress rarely hire permanent employees, let alone pay for them. In an uncertain business climate, the ability to pay recruiting fees serves as a good litmus test for a company’s financial stability.
