Why Use a Recruitment Agency

1st Oct

Job hunting can be a slog. A stressful, frustrating, worrisome slog that can make you feel like you are getting nowhere and everywhere, all at the same time. For every job that’s on a jobs board, there are at least a hundred people vying for that role with impressive CVs and exquisitely written cover letters to get the employers attention. Job hunting can feel exhausting, so rather than choose to put the work in and depress yourself getting nowhere, why not consider using a recruitment agency to give you a hand?

The Advantages

Recruitment agencies Felixstowe are always on the lookout for strong, determined candidates that are skilled and ready to take on a new challenge. Recruitment agencies are in the ear of employers, which means that you are far more likely to get a ‘yes’ to your job application when you go through an agency, than if you did it all by yourself. That’s not to say that you’re rubbish at job hunting, but if an employer has put their trust in a recruitment agency to find them the right candidate, you can bet that the agency will vet their candidates carefully before putting any forward.

This is a massive advantage for you as a job seeker, because you will know that your recruitment agent is going to talk you up. It’s all going to be about you, your skills, what you can offer to the employer and it’s usually all done over the phone, so they’re going to hear the enthusiasm that’s all for you. There are some other – fairly obvious – advantages to asking a recruitment agency for help and here they are:

  • It’s free for you to use; all you need is your skills and a willing head on your shoulders.
  • You get access to jobs that may not be open to the public except through the capable hands of an experienced recruiter.
  • You can choose recruitment agencies Felixstowe that are specific to your industry.
  • Recruitment agents are meticulous in their work, so you know that if they put you forward for a role, you must be good for it.

Don’t Forget!

Just because you are working through a recruitment agency now doesn’t mean that your work ends. You will still need to be primed and polished for the jobs that you are put forward for. The recruitment agent that works with you is your link to clients and companies that may never have crossed your mind previously, but they cannot interview for you. The success of your interviews will all rest on your shoulders – your work doesn’t end with agency help.

Recruitment agencies also work with employers to make their recruitment processes a lot easier. Taking the recruitment process out of the company and thinning out the ever-growing candidate pools means that an employer can concentrate on their interview technique and not sifting through a million CVs.
