Research shows it can take six months of searching for the average person to find a new job. That's a lot of hours looking through job ads, tweaking and sending applications and crying into your lap after the 25th rejection. And it gets even tougher if you're looking for a new job while working.

Working with a recruitment agency frees up some of your time to do more of the things that make you happy. And because they spend eight hours a day (at least) trying to find candidates for vacant jobs, you have a better chance of landing one. Recruiters just know exactly where the jobs are, and they'll do everything they can to fill them with people like you.

When looking for a job, all the emotions will come up and slap you on the cheek. Stress, anxiety, frustration, fear, elation, hopefulness - they'll all make an appearance. If you work with a recruitment agency, they'll have your back every step of the way, helping you deal with these emotions and normalise the ups and downs of the process.

Whether it's jazzing up your resume, coaching you on interview techniques or helping you decide which role to accept, your recruitment consultant will support you from applying to accepting an offer.

Unless you're friends with the Kardashians, you'll have fewer connections that can help you get a job than a recruitment agency. Most recruitment agencies have been in the game for a very long time. And throughout this time, have built up a solid network of people, tens of thousands of times bigger than your LinkedIn profile with 238 connections. By working together, you can take advantage of this, and get the most out of your hard work job-seeking.

Another thing. When you send your resume to a HR department, you rely on them looking at that document and loving it so much, they ask you in for an interview. Things are different if you work with a recruitment agency. You have someone in your corner. Someone who has a relationship with that hiring manager and who can boost you up in their eyes. A hype person, in a way.
