You find your dream role on a popular job board, you submit your CV and covering letter and then wait. Most of the time, that job board has an algorithm that has stopped your CV from even getting seen by a real person especially if you haven't added any 'keywords' relevant to the role you have applied for. At Noble Recruiting we won't even put a candidate forward for a temporary role if we haven't met them first. It may seem laborious having to be interviewed by a middle man but in reality, they will quickly establish your core strengths and you are then no longer relying on two sides of paper to get an interview.

How comfortable are you at negotiating the right rate of pay for a new job? We see so many candidates that are in a job where they had to compromise on pay or benefits at interview stage to secure the role. At Noble Recruiting we do all the negotiating for you so you start your new job with the package you want because we have already showcased your skills to the Client before you interviews.

The job boards make it very easy for you to apply for thousands of jobs daily but how does that validate your worth? It potentially makes you look like you don't really know what you want and devalues your actual skills in the process and an employer may red flag you altogether. Using an agency allows the recruiter to only select roles which you are likely to interview well for and remember, employers are paying for this service so are more likely to invest in the role you are being put forward for, as you become a valuable invested asset to their business.

The quickest way to let your employer know you are unhappy is to upload your CV to a job board. It's not a crime but your current employer might not be happy about it. When you work with a recruiter, your information is handled confidentially, and you have much more control over who is viewing your CV.
