Reasons to use a Recruitment Agency in your Job Search
Recruitment Agencies, like *cough cough* The Patriot Group, are becoming increasingly popular. Research shows that more companies are utilizing the expertise of a recruitment agency to fill open hiring requirements. And now…candidates are finding their way to these agencies too!
What is a Recruitment Agency?
Recruitment agencies search for qualified and ideal candidates for open job positions with one or more companies. Based on the specific requirements, agencies typically source their talent from their network, social media, job fairs, job boards, etc.
Once a recruiter finds their ideal candidate(s), they will screen their resumes. If there is a potential match between the candidate’s profile and the specific job opening, the recruiter will plan an interview to discuss the skills and needs of the candidate.
It is during this interview where not only the candidate gets to learn more about the specifics of the job, but it gives us, the recruiters, the opportunity to learn more about your experience, skills, and motivations. If that interview goes well, the candidate can then be invited to be interviewed further by the client. Once a candidate makes it to this step, the recruiter carefully monitors the process to ensure a smooth and continuous process. The end result hopefully be an offer of employment made from the company to candidate.
