Searching for a job, particularly in these economic times, can be highly discouraging and very difficult. Depending on your field, you can really struggle to get that first position, especially as many of today’s jobs are being filled by highly qualified people who have been let go from their jobs and in turn, there are fewer entry-level positions for new graduates and those that are switching careers, etc. If you’re currently searching for a position, or if you are about to graduate and want to get ahead of the others, considering making use of a media and creative recruitment agency when looking for a job.
Why should you use such an agency? You might wonder why not cut out the middle man and save yourself the trouble of involving more people in the work search; you might also be a perfectionist who likes doing everything on your own. If either of those applies to you or if for another reason, you simply do not want to go down this route, reconsider. A media and creative recruitment agency can help you find a position much faster as the agency will have connections you might not know about and ways into jobs which you might not have heard about before.
When searching for a job, you will likely spend hours on the internet, looking at all sorts of websites. An agency tends to filter these for you and let you know which sites are good and, which are a waste of your time. Involving this “middle man” then can actually save you time in the long run; time you might spend calling all sorts of the wrong people or applying to bogus sites in the hopes of finding your dream position.
A recruitment agency such as yellow cat recruitment agency should have individuals ready to tailor-make a job search to your needs, availability, and specification. They will then search for jobs that meet those, saving you time looking at countless ads that, in the end, do not meet your needs at all. There should also be plenty of people who can talk you through the process of application and this can sometimes be very helpful when it comes to things like interview technique or how to make your curriculum vitae really stand out. In these times, when the market is highly competitive, this is something to be taken advantage of!
While it is tempting to do all the work yourself, you really should consider a media and creative recruitment agency when searching for a job; this can particularly be helpful if this is to be your first position, and you have little or no prior experience in looking for paid work. An agency will be able to put you in touch with the right people and will take into account your needs and specifications, matching it to the needs and specifications of advertised—or unadvertised—positions. Expertise never hurts, and this is something such agencies tend to have in spades. Try it!
