Should I work with a recruiter to find a job? What are some of the benefits of doing that vs. job hunting on my own?

You can start and develop in any direction The question is how long it will take to implement, in accordance with the efforts made to achieve the desired result. If you already have a list of companies where you want to work, don't be afraid to open related vacancies. It is not always possible to understand the area of responsibility by the position name. Please read the functional description and requirements carefully. Perhaps a non-obvious role will suit you.
I am currently working as a recruiter, and I have to say that you should always be doing both. You always want to keep an eye out on your own, as you never know what you may be interested in and/or what the recruiter is missing (as they typically only work with a specific group of clients).

For example, I work in the Clinical Research industry, but there are recruiters that work in marketing or in publishing. So you'll have to do a little research on your end as well.

Also, keep in mind that when working with a recruiter, you'll be making slightly less than you would be if you applied to a client directly, as a recruiter does make commission off of the candidates they place.

That being said, think about it as paying a premium for expanded access to positions that you otherwise wouldn't have had access to.

So to make a long story short, utilize as many resources as possible when it comes to your job search.
