Are Recruitment Agencies Really Necessary for Job Hunts?

April 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

When talking about the importance of recruitment agencies, we should consider both the viewpoint of employers and viewpoint of job seekers. Since the agency acts as a liaison for both parties, it becomes imperative to assess the two sides in order to come up with a viable answer to this particular inquiry.

At present, employment positions are quite rare, particularly for popular careers and professions in the industry of medical, healthcare, marketing and banking jobs. Aside from employment positions narrowing down overtime, the level of competition is another thing you should be worried about. Whether you are going for a position as sales manager or marketing manager, you will find hundreds of applicants aiming for the same position as you are aiming for. If you are carrying weaker credentials or qualifications compared to another applicant, you might as well say goodbye to that particular spot.

For job seekers, recruitment agencies are heaven sent. Their services are streamlined to make sure that you land a job that best fits your individual circumstances and conditions. What is great about such a service is that almost all recruitment firms provide services totally free of charge. Why is that you might ask? Basically, their commission comes from employers who they are also working with. With the standard commission-based system, this yields further benefits to the job hunter since they will most likely be working with agencies that aim to give you a job you are most interested in and will exercise all necessary efforts in order to secure a position for you. Commission-based system means that the agency will only be paid by the employer for every successful placement of an employee into the organization. So the odds are your agency is rooting and supporting you all the way until you land a suitable job position.

Working with recruitment firms as a job hunter also gives you access to networks of top level management and large corporations that can further your career opportunities in the future. A good and reputable recruitment agency definitely has some promising career positions up its sleeve that you or any other job hunter can find on the Internet or the classified ads of the local newspaper. Many recruitment firms will also handle the responsibilities entailed from job hunting, thus reducing the legwork from your side. From handling paperwork and documents to setting up interview schedules, job seekers will have fewer responsibilities when working with an agency than they would have when riding solo.

As an employer, you can also say that companies can benefit from the services of a recruitment firm. Whether you stand as an accounting or a business development manager, your workforce contributes significantly to the success of your enterprise. Although most large corporations have their private Human Resources department that handles the placement of competent workers for the organization, a few have limited resources to employ their own HR department. If you are in need of only a few job positions to fill up, a recruitment firm can definitely be a practical and economical option for you to take.

Another vital benefit of using the services of a recruitment firm as an employer is that they can fill up the available job positions and find the best transport staffing members to comply with their company's specific demands and requirements.

Thomas Lee recommends the help of a recruitment agency when opting for a career change, especially in sales, marketing or accounting jobs.
