Recruiting agencies share open positions suitable for their clients that are not available to the public. This makes it much easier for their clients to get enlisted for the job since the selection pool is not huge if the employer chooses to advertise the job vacancy to the general public.

Choosing a recruitment agency to find a job means that you are included as a possible candidate. This happens in case of a job opportunity from the recruiting agency's employer since you will be in the agency's database of candidates.

Working with a recruiting agency is not a one-time thing. The agency makes sure to keep in touch with your career progress with time; you may hear from them again.

Suppose you are ready to take the next step in your career or move into another exciting opportunity. In that case, the recruiting agency may be of great assistance in helping you transition to the next step.

Most recruiting agencies charge you absolutely nothing when applying with them or using their available services. As the recruiting agency is there to serve, you are also aiding them in finding the most suitable candidates for their clients, and this is how they get paid by their clients once they deliver eligible candidates to them.

Recruitment agencies help you get the necessary feedback for career growth. They provide constructive criticism and feedback to their clients.

If you did not get a job after an interview, the agency acts to help you understand your strengths and tap into them the next time.
