Which Recruitment Agency Do You Choose?
Now that you’ve settled on working with a recruitment agency to land your dream job, the rule of thumb here is to do your research. Select recruitment firms that specialize in the industry you’d like to join. From there, familiarize yourself with their website and ensure they have a solid reputation for good customer service and with placing candidates in the right-fit position. Not only should you be talking to people in your network to get recommendations, but use your intuition to evaluate the service you receive once you reach out by telephone to the agency.
Ask yourself questions like: what kinds of resources are made available to you? Are they willing to spend the time to guide and review your credentials to help you made your career change?
