To win good contracts, it is essential to find the right client to work for. In the majority of situations, recruitment agencies are the key to connecting you with the people who require your specific skills. Selecting the right recruitment agency is very important - here are 3 tips for finding good recruitment agencies:
Search: Since it is such a lucrative industry, there are a large number of recruitment agencies catering to various markets. However, it is very important to ask around and find which ones are fly by night outfits and which ones are actually good. Once you talk to a few of them, you will soon realize the best ones to work with.
Preferred Agents: Many recruiting agencies work directly with large clients who want to outsource their hiring. The clients prefer to work with these agencies only and do not entertain direct requests most of the time. Contacting the preferred agencies or suppliers would be the only way to find work with these clients.
Same Industry: There are recruitment agencies who hire people only for specific industries. These agencies tend to know people in that industry since they would have themselves worked in that field for many years. Finding a good recruitment agency can go a long way in helping you get good and consistent work.
