Job hunting can be daunting and sometimes difficult. Whatever has prompted your search, we are here to help
Finding the right representative for you is vital. When talking to other agencies, check they are professional, listen to how they sound on the phone, question them about their knowledge of the market place they are going to represent you in. Some agencies will have specialists for particular sectors meaning they should have even better market knowledge than those that are more general, they should have good contacts and leads within those sectors they represent. It is wise to be selective, register with quality agencies, choosing those that you think will represent you in the best possible way. Agencies are unlike job centres and equally they will only want to work with you if they genuinely think they can help you, it is not worth wasting your time or by registering lots of people they cannot help. They should be able to give you the best help and guidance and if not, they should be able to point you in the direction of someone who can or at least be able to help with your journey.
