When it comes to looking for a new job, it can be incredibly frustrating and time consuming. We've all been there and nobody enjoys the process. Firstly, you have to make sure your CV & cover letter are up to date. Then the searching begins, setting up job email alerts in the process. When you do finally find some jobs you like, you begin the lengthy process to filling out applications. Then if all goes well you will have an interview/interviews, some may include initial telephone interviews before you meet for the final interview- face to face. On top of all this you then have the wait itself after the interview to see if you have been successful. Sometimes the wait can be long, especially if the hiring company are interviewing numerous people. This entire process is like a full time job in itself, well, minus the pay check.
So the question is, how do you make this process easier, quicker and more targeted for you as the candidate. The answer to this is simple, find the recruitment agency that is right for you and let the journey to finding your dream job begin!
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 recruiter 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.
Recruitment agencies will also have dedicated consultants with strong networks, meaning these consultants can proactively reach out to many companies you are passionate about working for and see if any suitable roles are available to you, providing you with a large scope for joining your dream company.
On top of this, recruitment agencies will amend and tailor your job applications to be as effective as possible for each specific opportunity you apply for. Considering the recruiter will know exactly what the client is looking for, this provides candidates with the best possible platform to impress. Ultimately, registering with a recruiter saves you time and effort when job searching, as they do the hard work for you whilst also maximising your opportunities.
Helping You Prepare
A good agency will know all about the hiring companies culture, team structure and progression opportunities, knowledge you can't find in a job advert. This can be invaluable in your preparation as the recruitment agency can provide you with everything you will need to be prepared effectively.
Whilst on the flip side, as a candidate you can also build up a strong relationship with an agency/consultant. This will stand you in good stead as by having an understanding of your career aspirations, personality and salary expectations, consultants will be able to match you to jobs in a more targeted way. Whilst we are on the topic of salary expectations, you will no longer have any awkward conversations around this with your potential new boss. Recruitment agencies take care of your salary negotiations making sure you get the required salary you are looking for and ensuring all parties are happy with the financial arrangements. So it's a win win for everyone!
In addition to sorting out some tricky details of the job application process, agencies will also provide important advice to help their candidates strengthen interview skills, maximising the chance of you getting that dream job! You will also be provided with constructive feedback, a very useful part of the process which allows you as the candidate to evaluate how you did and make relevant changes to ensure you progress next time if you have been unsuccessful.
