Getting the best out of utilizing an agency for job hunting:

On registering with an agency, be sure to maintain contact rather than just waiting for them to contact you.  Agencies register hundreds of applications often weekly and a high percentage of those applicants fail to notify the agencies that they are no longer available so it is prudent that you keep in touch at least once every 2-3 weeks.

  • When communicating with an agency, avoid coming across as demanding or condescending.  They are not obligated to help you so be sure to keep your contact with them on friendly terms.

Job hunting tips:

Don’t simply wait for jobs to be advertised.  Select companies that interest you and research them.  Treat yourself as a product to be marketed.
