You may wonder why you would want to use an agency to help you find a graduate job after you complete school. You did after all just finish college courses, and are smart enough to look for companies that are hiring in your area. You are articulate, and have your diploma ready, and your resume is completed and ready to be handed out to all potential employers. Why would you want to pay an agency to help you find a graduate job?
The number one reason to hire an agency to help you find any job, graduate job, or any type of position, is because not all companies announce the fact that they are hiring to everyone around. Some of the places that you would like to have a graduate job at are places that only list their openings at the employment agencies.
Using a place that can match the correct employee to the correct position is easier for both the corporation doing the hiring and the person that is looking for work. The agency you employ will take down your list of qualifications and skills and they will match you to the most appropriate job opening.
When you go to the company that is looking to fill positions you will already have been screened so they know that you fit the requirements they had. All they have to do is see if you understand what the position they have is and if you are well suited to working in the environment they have.
A graduate job is significantly different from one that requires no formal training or education. The jobs that require no formal training or education simply hang signs out front of their establishment saying they are hiring. These positions have a high turn-over rate because they pay poorly and the working conditions are generally less than favorable. These types of jobs are why you went to college so that you would qualify for a graduate job and be able to have good pay, good benefits, and good working environments.
The economy has made finding employment to be more challenging that it was just five short years ago. There are fewer positions available because a large number of corporations and businesses have gone out of business in the last couple of years. Of the ones that remain in operation many of them have downsized and are now working fewer employees while they attempt to maintain a profitable bottom line.
This makes the job pool smaller and the number of people swimming in this pool is steadily increasing. The really scary part is that the people who are in this pool have higher and higher levels of education and you are suddenly faced with the fact that you need an edge or advantage to land the positions you want.
A professional company that devotes its efforts to helping the individual worker and the company find each other to create the best working environment is the smartest way to hunt for work.
