Using a recruitment consultancy to find a job
It’s not enough to register with a recruitment agency and expect work to follow. The most successful job seekers are the most proactive. Here are some things to bear in mind when working with an agency:
- Give your recruiter as much information as possible: Decide what salary you are looking for, what locations you are willing to work in (ie how far you are willing to travel to work), what type of role you want to do and if there are any jobs that you wouldn’t do, or any types of organisations you wouldn’t work for.
- Make sure your CV is accurate and up to date: This will save you and the recruitment agency a lot of time. Consider any advice from your recruitment consultant about improving your CV – remember they are the professionals and they want to help you get a job.
- Be proactive: Keep in regular contact with your recruitment consultant. Call them once a week and let them know you are still looking for work.
