There are many reasons why those searching for jobs apply through a recruitment agency. The main reason is that recruitment agencies can tap on the wealth of information and experience they have from working with companies across different industries and sectors. As companies outsource hiring to recruitment agencies, they not only do the job hunting for you but have access to job vacancies that may not be advertised elsewhere. The best part is, recruitment agencies are free to use by job-seekers.

On top of that, you can also get insights into hiring requirements that are not listed or obvious in job advertisements. That would prepare you for your interview with a prospective employer and increase your chances of getting hired.

Finally, be honest with the recruiter and utilise their expertise. Try and identify what it is you're looking for in a job and ask lots of questions. The more honest you are, the better they understand you and are able to help you find the best match.
