If you use a recruitment agency for your job search, you can expect more benefits such as follows:

  • Recruitment agency is free for candidates so you don't need to pay money or give tips when get hired. The agency is paid by their clients or companies.
  • The agency has more knowledge than you about the labour market, thus, it could help lighten your burden of searching for "the right job".
  • The recruitment agency can help you save time, therefore, you can prepare for the interview or enhance your knowledge about the job you expect to be hired.
  • The agency can quickly get you in contact with clients or employers because they have wider networks.
  • Recruitment agency can be your surveillance camera for a hidden opportunity due to their partnership with a lot of clients. They might know a job that you cannot see (those that might not be advertised publicly).
  • Another profit you can gain from them is that you will have a private assistance from the agency, as an example, interview to salary negotiation.
