Should I use a recruitment agency?

In addition to their basic function of matching you to suitable jobs, there are many benefits to using a recruitment firm. For example, specialist sector agencies have strong knowledge of their industry and can advise you on the best ways to break into a particular career.

They're well-connected, meaning that as well as being put forward for vacancies, your CV can be sent speculatively to a range of employers. Agencies will also be able to help you improve your CV and cover letter and give you interview tips. If you're put forward for a job but don't get it, the agency will usually provide constructive feedback.
