Ever wonder why you can't find those great jobs you hear about on huge job boards? It's probably because they are using the services of an employment agency. Nowadays, more and more companies are turning to employment agencies to do initial screenings and interviews, that way they don't have to sift through countless resumes and interview hundreds of people before they find the right fit. In fact, an April 2011 Staffing Industry Report finds that industry revenue went up 12 percent in 2010. It forecasts that professional staffing revenue will hit $50.6 billion by 2012. What does this mean for you? It means that these agencies actually have clients that could be your next employer.

Employment agencies essentially take on the role of your agent. If you have a problem with your placement, need to negotiate benefits, salary or commissions or just have general questions, employment agencies will work with you and for you. Again, it's in their best interest to make sure that both the employee and the employer are satisfied.
