Employment Agencies

Employment Agencies

Description: These companies will refer you to job openings and will typically be compensated by the employer.

Advantages: Requires little work on your part and allows you access to opportunities you might not have found on your own.

Disadvantages: An employment agency makes money when they place you into a job. Often your personal interests are not their top priority. If you have good qualifications, and you have an interest that corresponds with their opportunities, you might find these agencies helpful. If not, then don’t expect much assistance from these organizations. Tip: Avoid agencies that require you to pay a fee for them to place you.
