Looking for a new job without any assistance can be an incredibly frustrating experience.

It’s overwhelming:

  • applying for multiple jobs on hugely oversaturated job sites
  • keeping track of which jobs you’ve applied for
  • filling out endless convoluted application forms
  • sometimes inadvertently wasting time applying for phantom vacancies that have been filled and never taken down

It’s isolating and pressurising – and if you find yourself stuck in the job search cycle for too long, it can really take a toll on your motivation and morale.

But it doesn’t have to be this way! Getting a recruitment agency to help with your job search has loads of benefits, not least the fact that you don’t have to go it alone.

Read on to find out more benefits of signing up to a recruitment agency for your job search.

Benefits Of Using A Recruitment Agency

It’s Free!

Recruitment agencies like to have as wide a pool of candidates as possible to select from, so that they have plenty of options when it comes to matching the right people with the right roles and companies.

And that’s why recruitment agencies offer their job search services to potential candidates for free.

While the majority of traditional job listing sites are free, they are also so oversaturated that good people get lost in the virtual crowd.

Some sites give users the opportunity to pay in order to boost their visibility and stand out.

But we don’t believe in that because it’s pretty ineffective – and we also think that everyone should have an equal chance at success.

Keeping Your Job Search Focused On Relevant Roles

No job search site is going to turn up perfect results each and every time – in fact, candidates are often presented with roles that aren’t relevant to their skillset or personality type.

Given the sheer volume of roles that get added to job search sites each day, people searching for a new job could end up having to scrawl through hundreds of irrelevant results. Annoying, right? And it’s easy for really good candidates to get lost in all this mess and therefore miss out on great opportunities.

But entrusting a recruitment agency to help you with your job search will mean that you only see highly relevant and suitable roles that you have a good shot at securing!

Access More Job Openings Per Application

Job hunters will have to fill out and submit applications on a role-by-role basis when applying for new work through most job search sites – even if they’re applying for two separate roles at the same company.

What a faff.

But there’s no need to go through that when you put yourself in the hands of a recruitment agency, because the recruitment consultant will know about multiple vacancies at one company and can put you forward for as many as you like.

That Human Touch

Automation can, of course, be useful in many areas of life. But the employer-employee matching process just works better when it’s managed by a real person.

The thing is that recruitment agencies (well, good ones like Recruitrite!) really get to understand the employers they’re working on behalf of and the roles they’ve been tasked with filling. That means that a recruitment consultant will have excellent insight into the role requirements and the kinds of candidates that will be a great fit. You, for instance!

This leads to more informed recruitment decisions from all parties and much better matchmaking. Happy days!

Getting That CV Ship-Shape

Not everyone’s great at putting together a CV. In fact, writing a CV can be surprisingly difficult to get right.

Luckily, Recruitrite will be hands-on and ensure that your CV is top-class and ready to share with relevant prospective employers, thereby giving you a great chance of securing an interview for that job you really want.

Save Time And Hassle

Job hunting on your own can be an exhaustingly long and lonely process. It can mean:

  • weeks of drafting CVs and cover letters
  • getting frustrated at unreliable online job searches
  • waiting ages for responses to applications – and often never actually getting one

Job Search and relaxed

And that’s all with no guarantee of securing yourself an interview.

But a recruitment agency like Recruitrite can take all the hassle and stress out of your job search by taking care of the process and matching you with roles and companies that you’d be a really good fit for.

And, because we’ve usually got the inside-track on what employers are looking for in candidates, we can put you in a really good position to secure a job you really want.
