Still not convinced.? Here are 5 reasons why you should partner up with a recruitment agency to find a new job:
1. Constructive feedback available
Your consultant will offer constructive feedback regarding your CV and interview skills! This is one of the main benefits when working with a recruitment agency, they will provide valuable advice to help you improve your interview skills and increase the chances of you getting the job. As mentioned above, it makes the whole process less cold and more human.
Tailoring your CV for each job application requires a lot of time and effort, however, consultants can take the weight from your shoulders. Your consultant will be the one sending your CV to employers, organizing follow-ups, and planning interviews. This means you have more time and energy to use for other important things such as self-development.
3. Large network
Consultants have large networks in various industries, their job is based on having a large pool of candidates and many clients looking to hire someone new! The main advantage here is that many jobs are not advertised by the employer, as they tend to deal directly with a recruitment agency, saving themselves time. Therefore, registering with a recruitment agency provides you with a wider range of jobs within your desired market. Many of these opportunities are highly confidential, meaning applying through a recruitment agency is the only way you will be able to put yourself forward for these particular opportunities.
This is a great opportunity to obtain professional advice that will help you improve your CV skills, interview skills, and discuss your career progression opportunities. Recruiters have insights into companies’ culture, team structure, and more information that is never included in job adverts. The recruiter will guide you in the interview process to ensure you’re prepared to give a good impression and obtain the job.
5. Expertise in your industry
Recruiters specialize in sectors of industry and they know useful information regarding industry matters such as skill shortages, competitive salaries, company’s reputation, etc. On the other hand, your consultant may help you negotiate a better salary and other requirements that align with your career plan.
